Spatial Relationships

The Spatial Relationships helps the children to understand and recognize relative positions. Children should be able to use terms describing relative positions in daily life, such as: left-right, on- under, open-closed etc.

We can help the children to develop the necessary vocabulary through free conversation, dramatisation etc.
