What Should My Preschool-Aged Child be Able to Do?

Infancy and early childhood are a time of great growth and new accomplishments--more than at any other time in a person’s life.  But children continue to develop and acquire new skills as they age.  Let’s discuss some of the activities and skills a preschool child should be mastering.  Preschool refers to the ages of 3 to 5 years old.
A preschooler should already be able to get to standing, walk, and run, but they will be refining these skills by getting faster, smoother, more coordinated and more controlled.  As they age, their attention span should increase and their verbal skills improve.  They will be able to jump forward for longer distances, start at to hop on 1 foot, and enjoy more active play.
At this age children are starting to engage in play with others, imitate movements, and have more goal-directed behaviors.  They are easier to guide in play and can communicate with improving clarity and content. They are learning basic skills that they will need to start kindergarten.
