3 Tips for Talking to Your Preschooler About Their Day, Shelton, Connecticut

If you have a child who’s enrolled in a preschool center, you want to make sure that they’re getting value and enjoying their experience. However, extracting actual details from a young child can be challenging at times. Here are some tips you can use to start engaging conversations with your child about their preschool experience.

How to Talk to Preschoolers About Their Day

1. Talk While Playing

Kids are more likely to open up when they’re having fun. Instead of sitting them down to talk, start a casual conversation while you’re doing something they like. Work on a puzzle with them, color in their favorite coloring book, or play with their dolls or cars. When they seem comfortable and relaxed, sneak in a few easy questions about their day to get the ball rolling.

2. Limit Screen Time

To get the most out of your conversations, limit their access to gadgets to only a few hours a day. If they get used to not using screens right when they get home from preschool or during dinner hours, they will be more likely to engage with you when you start a conversation.

3. Show Them You’re Listening

It’s important to show your kids that you listen when they speak and give them positive reinforcement. When they start to open up about their day at their preschool center, engage with them by responding enthusiastically, asking more questions, and nodding or showing them that you understand through body language. This can help to keep conversations going and encourage them to continue opening up in the future. Ask them questions about the parts of their day they’ll enjoy talking about, such as recess, lunch, or art class.
