Inside Your Infant's day
Each day your child will be discovering things using all five senses, copying simple actions of the people around them, experimenting with toy instruments, exploring textures, colors, and learning a variety of words and sounds through playing with other children.
Purposeful Play Is Early Education
Each day is packed with carefully designed activities structured around the six main development areas. Here are a few example activities:
This month, infants will be encouraged to imitate a variety of different actions, such as moving toy vehicles in specific ways and making the sounds of vehicles.
In this activity, infants will be actively thinking and problem solving as they attempt to stack blocks.
Infants will explore everyday items that provide interesting tactile experiences, such as aluminum foil, bubble wrap, and crumpled newspaper.
