Ways to play with your child

Research shows that babies learn best through play. When babies are playing, they are really developing their Play IQ. They learn about the world around them and develop a wide range of important skills, such as their physical, cognitive, social and emotional skills.

Fill your child’s days with play-based opportunities to interact with adults and peers in positive ways. Remember to track your baby’s progress at different stages of development to help him develop his full potential through play.

Here are ways to play with your child at different stages of development from 1-24 months:

A great way to stimulate your baby’s learning is to give him the right toys at the right development stages. Help him reach developmental milestones in three key pillars of child development:

1. Physical Play IQ is when a child develops strength, coordination and confidence. Give him toys that encourage him to reach, grab, get up and move.
2. Cognitive Play IQ is about encouraging a child to touch, feel, listen and learn through play. Toys that inspire his natural curiosity and love of learning will help develop both his intelligence and creativity.
 3. Social and Emotional Play IQ is a child’s ability to share and express himself confidently while he plays. Using the right toys and playing with other children will help a child learn the skills to share, listen and lead.
