Talking and playing in everyday routines

A sense of order

Knowing what will happen next is important to young children:

  • It gives them a sense of security and helps them to begin to make choices
  • It can help to reduce the feelings of confusion that can lead to tantrums - but there's no guarantee
  • A sense of order in daily routines helps children to understand numbers and how they work, e.g. first, next
  • Routines can develop around the daily loves of family members, e.g.
      -  Child: dressing, eating, changing, washing, sleeping
      - Family: going out, coming back, appointments
      - Time: morning, afternoon, evening, night
      - Order: in which toys, machines, books work etc
