Color recognition is an important part of early childhood development and is often used in development milestone screening. Discerning between colors is one of the first ways that toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarten children begin to categorize and describe what they see in their world. Noticing subtle attributes, such as color or shape, is a building block to reading and math.
