Toddlers and preschoolers learn and grow at an astounding rate, don't they? Preschool learning happens in the midst of the child's environment and everyday play. You can have a big influence on that learning by exposing the child to a variety of learning experiences.
As the person who loves your little one to pieces, you provide the environment that will best help your child to grow and develop. This you already do in many ways, the most important of which is to love them and to help them feel secure enough to want to explore in the first place.
I have gathered together on this page some suggestions for toys that can aid you in your all important job of raising a child who will be all he or she can be. Early childhood experiences are very important for setting the stage for learning that will happen later in school. It really is true that children learn through play.
The toys I have chosen for this page are all toys that encourage cognitive development. Of course, there are other toys that encourage other things, but these toys were chosen because they help a child with problem solving, matching, categorizing, and other skills related to pre-math and cognitive development.
At the bottom of the page, I have linked to other articles I have written that relate to children and play. Some of them include homemade toys that you can create with your kids. If you have the time and inclination, please visit them, too.
I hope you enjoy your perusal of this page and that you find something that your little one will enjoy.
