Baby Basics: Child Development

Last week at our Baby Basics program we had a great informational seminar on sensory, visual, gross motor and auditory learning. Melinda Ives from Discovery Toys came out and broke down in age groups the best types of toys that help kids with their development from birth to school age. 

We talked about the importance of play, literacy, socializing and sensory experiences. 

Melinda brought with her some great samples of Discovery Toys for the babies to play with. It was great to see what the kids enjoyed so we could see first hand which toys caught their attention! 

Melinda talked about what to look for in toys, what to avoid, and the stages of toys for various age groups. Even simple things, like colour, have so much influence on our children's learning.
