How Daily Routines can help to support children's care and all round development for 0-3 years. A daily routine is the pattern of a day. A good routine helps children growth and development because it meets their basic needs. It also helps children feel secure as they know that similar things happen each day.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

A very good essay that discusses the key points of routines.

The writer has discussed how the routines can help the child's development and has demonstrated good understanding in places.

There is scope for a little more explanation in places and a little more research might help this.
