The Importance Of Science In Early Childhood Education

Why is Science Education Important For Early Childhood?


Young children are naturally inquisitive, full of questions about the world around them and the drive to investigate how things work. It follows, therefore, that we should take advantage of this innate curiosity and start channeling their enthusiasm for scientific discovery as early on as possible.

The benefits of the Early Years Science Education.

1. It can encourage a lifelong learning for science. Children are programmed to explore and experiment right from the start, even as babies. So by tapping into their natural predispositions early on, during this key developmental phase, we can nurture and establish a positive approach to science education that will stay with them into the future.

2. It gives a basic grounding in scientific concepts and scientific thinking. Even the very simplest activities can introduce children to scientific concepts and stimulate scientific thinking. By encouraging and directing their natural curiosity, and familiarizing them with basic scientific vocabulary, early years educators can help children begin to make sense of the world around them, and gain some understanding of how things work.

3. It supports other development skills and attributes. These include communication skills, collaborative skills, team working and perseverance, as well as analytical, reasoning and problem-solving skills. Help them expand their vocabulary by using scientific terms that are appropriate for their age group.

The resources for simple science experiment is within the reach of our hands now and they are fun to try at home.
