What I like about working with young preschoolers:

At this age, children are learning to establish themselves as little humans, with their own thoughts and opinions and they are learning so much! They are learning to take care of their own needs, like potty training. They are navigating peer relationships now that they can really communicate effectively. They are starting to feel bigger emotions and are learning to name them and control them. It is really great to be the person they rely on at school when these big milestones happen.
