• Social interaction is foundational to the learning process in the early childhood classroom.
  • As play becomes increasingly collaborative, children actively engage in planning and executing play scenarios, problem-solving, negotiating conflicts and sharing information.
  • Language begins to be an important tool as the group dynamic becomes more complex, and sharing information and articulating ideas accelerate concept formation.
  • As the necessity for conflict management arises, a skillful teacher can set clear boundaries and model appropriate responses, in the process encouraging a greater understanding of differences and an awareness of the needs of others.
