Benefits of Mirrors in Early Education Services

Using mirrors with infant and toddlers in a early education setting is a developmental tool used to teach self recognition. Young children can also develop pre-reading skills from the use of mirrors by learning pronunciation, vocabulary, and the skill of identification.

Practice Motor Skills- Have infants or toddlers try to “catch” bubbles as you slowly blow the bubbles against the mirror. This is a great way for infants to learn to follow with their eyes and is a great opportunity to increase hand-eye coordination. Have older toddlers practice getting dressed in the mirror. At first, this should be a simple task, such as putting on a jacket or socks. Praise every attempt the children make.

All of the PDF Education Supplies mirrors are safe to use around children as they will not shatter and have rounded corners for added safety
