Online educational resources for toddlers

Rachel Newcombe (2019) states that toddlers learn in a variety of ways, but the key methods of understanding and learning about the world around them fall into the following main categories:
  • Through watching and observing things that are going around them, in the home and when out and about.

  • Through listening to conversations between family members, old and young, and when out and about.

  • Through asking lots of questions about things they don’t understand or want to learn more about.

  • Through trying out new activities – often things they copy from you or their siblings.

  • Through practising all the skills as they learn them, as practice eventually makes perfect.
