A Passion for Lifelong Learning
In preschool, children are laying the foundations for their future character. By facilitating learning through play, preschool teachers help children build essential life skills, developing creative and inquisitive lifelong learners. View here how we support preschool teachers in delivering engaging and effective learning experiences that develop essential skills for every child.
Recognize & Understand Emotions
It is important for preschoolers to recognize and understand emotions in themselves and others before they move on to kindergarten. Build Me “Emotions” gives preschoolers the opportunity to role-play, share, take turns, and listen to others as they discuss feelings and emotions from day-to-day preschool life.

Role-Play and Early Math skills
Preschoolers enjoy pretending and role-playing different situations. One instance of role-play is a kitchen, where one child gets to be a chef and another gets to be a patron. The more roles added, the more kids can join. While playing, children acquire many relevant skills, such as speaking, listening, and collaboration. Additionally, they are also counting while making change, adding while coming up with the bill, and using fractions when sharing food. Cafe + from LEGO® Education enables this fun and playful learning environment by teaching:
- Simple addition & subtraction
