A child with a transporting schema moves everything from one place to another. This is a common schema in toddlers.

A child who has a transporting schema may:

  • Put sand in a bucket and move it to another area.
  • Take things from one place to another in prams, trolleys and bags.
  • Go back and forth bringing you items from around the room.


If a child has a transporting schema parents/carers can provide:

  • A collection of bags and boxes.
  • Pushchairs and trucks.
  • Pasta and other items to transport.
