Social development results from social nature of human being which determines man's position in a social group or specific social community. The primary social involvement is made especially in family life and then, it is modified and developed in consecutive social groups with nursery school being ranked in the first place among them. Family develops skills of social contacts in a natural way, mainly, due to frequent and personal interactions between parents, siblings and rest of household members. However, a nursery school broadens social world of child. It allows a child to function as a new person in society and it is an opportunity to make new acquaintances and friendships. Through carefully selected games, a child is taught how to obey the rules existing in the group.
