The Importance of Play to Infants


Play has a central role in an infant’s learning and development. When you play with your baby, it opens a series of opportunities for them to learn. Besides that, play also helps your child build confidence, feel loved, happy, and safe, develop social, language, and communication skills, and learn about caring for others and the environment.

Ideas to Try at Home

First time being a parent? Here are some ideas for infant play that you can try at home:

  • Try singing, tapping, or swaying to music and songs. This activity helps with developing a baby’s hearing and movement.
  • Use different objects with varying textures to tickle your baby, like a feather or foam. This develops your baby’s sense of touch.
  • Show you baby toys or objects of different sizes, shapes, and colors. This encourages your little one to reach and grasp.

These are just some ideas you can try at home. If you would like more help with Childcare, our Daycare in New York would be more than happy to lend a hand. Contact us today to learn more about our enrollment process!
