Preschool children are also developing time-preferences when they understand that there are times when it is better to wait for something rather than to have it now. Children as young as 3 years of age are exposed to the social values of giving and sharing, not just with gifts or tangible materials, but also with interaction with others. Other important life skills that are embedded in Aflatot include taking turns, making decisions and setting goals. We believe that, even in their early years, children are highly capable and competent, regardless of their backgrounds, experiences and ages. Children are active, self-motivated learners eager to understand the world in which they live, and learn when supported through adult interactions.
