    • Intellectually
      • Adults and professionals can support children with their intellectual skills by providing them with activities and resources that will enhance their creative thinking. As an example this could be with coloring in letters to spell a word or mixing the different primary colours to make new ones.
    • Language
      • One of supporting children within their language development would be through to use of group work and talking together. therefore the children can listen to others, through social learning they will pick up what other  children and adults are saying therefore learning new words and phrases.

      • Having a space with lots of toys and resources is also key due to the fact that this enables the children to chose what they do with the toys and space.

      • When working with children they can get emotional therefore by supporting them when they are upset can make them feel more comfortable within the space they are in.
        • Through them feeling comfortable within the space they will be more confident to do the activities such as art work and others things. therefore enabling them to be more creative.
    • Socially
      • Within working with children you have to ensure that you give them to time to enhance their social skills by working in groups. Therefore giving activities which mean that they all work together.
      • When working with children and leading an activity you have to ensure that they don't tell them what to do. be a role model showing them the best ways.
    • Resources
      • Making sure that you have a range of different resources for the children to be creative with will able them to show themselves and how they feel.
      • By having resources that are age appropriate will help them to enhance skills that they need to meet milestones.
    • Time
