How to Teach Your Child About the World and Space

There are many important things that children are taught as they grow. When children are young, they develop their understanding of the world by noticing everything around them, including places and all the things within them, like trees in the natural environment and roads and traffic in the built environment.

In order to find out about different places, it's essential for children to discover things close to their homes, and they often begin to notice these things when traveling to and from school. Later they learn more about the places they are visiting through the journey to and from school.

This aspect of social and emotional development is developed not only through having conversations with adults and other children about the things they observe but also through toys.


The Best Time to Discover the World and Space 

Imagination is the most important tool in a child's education because it is the key to understanding everything about the world. Children's imaginations are bigger than anyone else's, and nothing sparks their imaginations more than the world, and space.

Basically, the best time to start learn about space and earth together with kids is at age of 5 years. At preschool age, it's interesting and essential to learn about other countries, different cultures around the world, oceans, and planets, because a child's brain is well-developed to absorb and understand the information completely. 

At age of 5 children are curious, specifically about:

  • Understanding Seasonality 
  • Learning Different Cultures

  • Understanding why different animals can live only in special environments

Today parents are offered a large number of thematic materials and ways to discover the world together with their children.
