Independence is a vital part of childhood development. Being able to say, “I can do it myself!” build this independence. There child learns task initiation, sequencing, sustained effort and concentration, and task completion in this area.

Socialization also progresses because through their own experience the children learn not only to respect the work and concentration of others, but also to help when asked.
