2-3 year old girl happy

2-3 years

Toddlers learn a lot during this time, so it’s good to ask them questions, let them make choices about what they like and encourage them playing nicely with others.


At this age, your child will learn hundreds of new words. By chatting to them, you’ll help add to their understanding of conversations and how the world works.


To children this age, playing and learning are the same thing. They’ll base their pretend play on what they’ve seen you do, so don’t be afraid to join in.


Reading to your child helps them learn how to tell stories, and that the symbols in books are letters and words. It helps prepare them for learning to read.
