Your child’s time at day care will play a central role in early brain development. Certain activities should be included not only at home, but also in the curriculum of your child care facility.

  • Story time: Your child is attracted to the sound of your voice beginning from the moment they are born. Reading is a relaxing activity that calms and soothes your child while triggering language development. Children who are read to will have more advanced vocabularies, as well as problem solving, communication and speaking skills.
  • Sign language: Your infant’s motor skills develop far more rapidly than their ability to speak. Utilizing these skills, combined with sign language, are fun ways to communicate. Teaching your child to sign indicating hunger, tiredness or thirst reduces the stress of early communication gaps. These skills have a positive impact on social-emotional bonding and language skills, while also refining fine motor skills.
  • Sensory toys: Early brain development is triggered through sensory play. Specific toys that appeal to different senses will help support this growth. Soft textures, bright colors, interesting shapes, and toys that make sounds are all important. Help your child to explore using all of these senses. Fitting blocks together, rolling a ball, and the sound of a rattle will enhance motor and cognitive skills.
  • Pretend play: As an infant grows into an active toddler, the child will enjoy exploring the world through different concepts and imaginary play. Using a few props, let your child take the lead. This way, the child will be able to practice and reinforce new concepts that have already been learned. Different games help your child learn about social behaviors, while refining problem solving, language, motor and creative skills.
