How ECE Children Develop Friendships

According to researchers from the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child at Harvard University, who have studied how young children develop in an environment of relationships, beyond just spending time with other children, it is crucial for young children to develop friendships. The research shows that “children learn and play more competently in the rapport created with friends rather than when they are dealing with the social challenges of interreacting with casual acquaintances.” Of course, children have different personalities, with some being more outgoing and others being quieter, so this is a key area where skilled early education teachers can focus and help support children’s growth. Ms Veronica Martin, Early Child Education (ECE) Coordinator at Yew Chung International School of Shanghai, Pudong (YCIS), shares that teachers and parents are instrumental in guiding children to create these connections.
