Why is Early Childhood Messy?

The Challenges of the Early Childhood years…IT IS MESSY!

It is MESSY because… What happens early in life lasts a lifetime! Children learn as they break the rules and study the limits and boundaries of life.

Early childhood years are...

  • Emotionally Messy – Children are learning about themselves
  • Socially Messy – Children are learning about others
  • Cognitively Messy – Children are solving the everyday problems
  • Physically Messy – Children are figuring out how to organize their lives

    In the early childhood years, children are formulating how they relate to the world emotionally, socially, cognitively, and physically. You can hear more on this subject by clicking here and  viewing Steve Z's discussion on KPLR-11.
