Colour Recognition

Colour, it’s one of the most noticeable attributes of the world around us. For babies and small children, understanding colour is an essential building block they will use for learning in all areas of their life


Colour recognition can provide children with essential learning tools in life. For example, in mathematics, colour recognition is used to categorise, sort, compare and organise. Additionally, as children learn to identify colours and use colour as a language tool to describe things, it develops and strengthens their ability to communicate effectively.

Teaching children about colour (including shades, tones and hues), will also help them to use colour as a means of creative expression in all aspects of life.

Children also learn to use colour as a visual cue to identify danger (red) and distinguish hot from cold. However the role in which colour has on your child’s development doesn’t stop there – the list could go on forever, and includes how colour affects mood, sleep patterns and even health and wellbeing.
