This would help the child to build a friendship with other children in the same life stage. Their emotional need would be met by the child feeling different range of emotion; they would be overwhelmed with joy, happiness, and excitement. The child would feel proud if they were praised by their mother or the instructor. The intellectual need of a child would be fulfilled by the child learning a new surrounding and the new activities taught to them, for example nursery rhythms. This would also increase the amount of words children know, increase on their vocabulary. The child?s physical need would be fulfilled by contributing to the activities such as tag. There are a wide range of mother and toddler groups in the UK who contribute to a child?s emotional, physical, social and intellectual development.
