Preschoolers often have few boundaries about their bodies. Knowing that children’s curiosity of their bodies and the bodies of others is a normal and developmentally appropriate stage does not lessen the often awkward feelings and uncertainty of how to handle it. Children don't adequately understand the concept of privacy until age 5 or 6, but at 3 and 4 they are beginning to understand the concept of rules. While in our care, early learning educators should use teachable moments to help children learn what’s appropriate in a way that does not make them feel ashamed.
This workshop explores tips and strategies educators can use to help preschool children bridge the expanse from developmentally appropriate curiosity of the world around them to healthy decision-making and boundaries?
