Self Help
Self help rounded.png

Within the first three years, young children become able to take an active part in their own physical care and to be a trusted helper in the nursery or their own home. They become steadily more able to:

·         Manage their own toileting and hygiene - the actual physical skills and the intellectual task of remembering and following a sequence 

·         Feed themselves, handle drinks and make choices about food 

·         Dress and undress, expressing preferences about clothes 

·         Take appropriate responsibility within their nursery or home by taking part in tidying up, serving out food and helping in routine daily tasks 

·         Make choices about activities and plan a bit ahead with the support of a patient adult.
