Early Childhood Development and the Uses of Color Part II

Childcare, Preschool

Early childhood education is a key part of your child’s development.  One of the most subtle and powerful ways of shaping children is the effective use of color.

Color Recognition:  Why It Matters

As any decent Gilbert preschool knows, recognizing colors is very important.  The ability to differentiate between red and yellow will help a child recognize important information like traffic signals.

Color recognition is also important for problem solving ability.  Having a child point out the different colors also helps them to get inroads into recognizing other things too such as shapes and patterns. Learning this at the daycare level can help your child be ready for school in just a few short years. However, color serves other purposes as well.

Color Recognition: Child Development and Expression

With childhood development there is also another use for color:  expression.  Finger paint for example can help a child develop their creative side, and also show your childhood how color can convey emotion.

People that don’t know about preschool don’t realize that about finger painting.  It’s nothing to do with being messy, it’s about expression.  Here is a good article excerpt about color use from Purdue University:

Children and adults learn that they can use colors to tell others how they feel. For example, it means one thing to wear all black. It usually means something else to wear a bright, flowery shirt. Some messages are communicated with colors on TV, in movies, and in other forms of media. In some classes at school and in some jobs, colors are very important. People who are in interior design, landscaping, and historical restoration need to know a lot about colors.[READ MORE] Being in the preschool business, we are well aware of how much color can help your kids learn and grow.
