Everyday life is a playground
For a young child, everyday life becomes a playground and a world rich of experiences. Things like grandfather coughing, vegetables in a grocery store, dog on a street, dough in the kitchen, honking of a car, noisy adults around, a visit by the doctor, going for a haircut, etc. are the central learning experiences of the child. The content offered to the child to experience is designed by its surrounding and adults. In this journey of learning a child absorbs the behavior of people with each other, the role of a mother, the role of a father, the role of a woman or man, programs on how to handle conflict, it learns words, sentences, grammar, etc. Have you ever realized that no one ever learned their own mother-tongue at school. No one of us had to be taught how to speak. We all simply started to speak and actually the brain is able to speak a language without using schooling methods. When we start realizing how children learn everything not just by going to school but actually by living together in family and community of children, then we start to understand that schooling is not the only way to learn.
