Activities

Infants

We play games such as ‘peek-a-boo’ or ‘pat-a-cake’. Sturdy cardboard books are provided and read to them. Toys that are responsive to the infant’s actions, such as grasping toys that require different types of manipulation, skill-development materials such as stacking materials or activity boxes and containers to fill and empty; also a selection of balls of different sizes, textures, colors, bells and rattles. This supports eye-hand coordination.

With mixed ages, babies watch the toddlers and seem to advance faster with walking, talking,
running and much much more.

I offer water table play, sprinklers or just squirt bottles and cups.
