Early learning—so much more than ABCs

Day after amazing day, all the fun-filled things they do and discover are the very things that help children learn. And all the things you do for them? Part of giving your child the best possible start. Enjoy!

  • Physical

    Sensory

    Hearing, seeing, touching, tasting-the senses are the very first windows to helping your child learn, "lighting up" areas of the brain.

    Fine Motor

    From grasping a toy to holding a pencil, developing fine motor skills helps lead to success in school and beyond.

    Gross Motor

    Huge physical milestones occur in the early years—and motor skills keep getting refined as your child grows.

    Balance & coordination

    Sitting up, walking, running—they’ll use a LOT of energy building these skills.

  • Cognitive

    Curiosity & Discovery

    Encouraging that natural sense of wonder and amazement will help your child want to learn more every day!

    Imagination & creativity

    Asking “what if?” Dreaming up new ways to see the world. Being able to imagine and create. They’re hallmarks of great thinkers.

    Thinking & problem solving

    How does it work? Figuring things out is one of the best parts of play—from simple challenges to more complex ones.

    Academics

    From ABCs to actual reading, from reciting numbers to counting things, the early years of play set the foundation for success in school and beyond.

  • Social & Emotional

    Security & Happiness

    Playful children are happy children. When all is said and done, you want your child to have emotional connections, to feel happy and secure-now, and when they re all grown up!

    Self expression & confidence

    Feeling good about yourself and letting others know your thoughts are essential skills that develop naturally through play.

    Listening & communication

    A child can hear even before birth—and will always benefit from being a good listener (and talker!).

    Sharing & cooperation

    Taking turns and getting along with others takes time and practice, but doing that while playing makes it easier and more fun!
