How Tiny Hoppers Helps Your Kids with Socialization

June 25, 2021

The past year has been a challenging one, to say the least, and with so many restrictions in place, it’s been particularly tough on children. Being able to see, interact, communicate and play with other kids is an essential part of their development. Thankfully, early learning childhood programs can still provide the social interaction kids need as they grow while being in a safe and nurturing environment. Wondering exactly how Tiny Hoppers helps your kids with socialization? Learn more about us and our award-winning programs below.

Team Work

At Tiny Hoppers, our programs are designed to help kids flourish with a combination of activities that teach them the building blocks for social and emotional development. During playtime and group activities, children get to learn and experience how to communicate, discuss, cooperate and be part of a team with their peers. Even if they disagree with another child, they’re taught how to voice their opinion, be polite and kind with others, share and respect the boundaries of others. This also helps teach them how to cope with their own emotions in a positive and healthy manner.

Independence 

During the first initial visits, many children can often feel scared when their parents drop them off in an unfamiliar setting. The separation anxiety is all part of it, but bringing your little into daycare lets them learn how to develop and function independently. They learn how to trust others, including their parents once they return to pick them up again. This also makes the transition into school much easier when it’s time to drop them off on the first day.

Encouraging Kindness and Consideration

Kindness and consideration for others are crucial for developing positive social skills in life. At Tiny Hoppers, our staff provides positive encouragement to reinforce these characteristics. Simple games that are reciprocal and require kids to take turns help them learn to be thoughtful and generous too. 

Reconciliation and Apologizing

Whether a child says something hurtful or does something to offend another peer, difficult situations will always occur during daycare that can lead to upset feelings. But there are many valuable lessons that children can learn during these moments, such as learning to apologize and accept apologies, speak to each other respectfully and to forgive.
