Educarers at the infant care centre assist the kids by asking them questions like what did you build? How did you make it? What is the name of your structure? Will the structure retain the height? Children will keep in mind the conversation with their educarer and will work on it at the same time to make their model more attractive. It helps in building the child-teacher bond which makes the educarer know more about a child and express it well to their parents in the meetings.

Children learn to recognize shape, size, color, numbers, patterns, length, width of the object by moving away and forth. This helps in cognitive skill development as they represent mental picture of things and give them concrete form through block building makes their abstract thinking strong.
In preschool children tend to make friends and get a social exposure through block building task, they accept each other’s presence and know the importance of teamwork.
