Developmental Activities for Kids (Newborns, Infants, and Toddlers)
Why are developmental activities important for young children?
By participating in developmental activities, children can embrace their unique abilities, build their confidence, and nourish their curiosity. Furthermore, these activities help lay the foundation for essential life skills like resilience, socialization, and coping with challenging situations.
of a child’s brain develops by age 5
At age 2 or 3, a healthy brain has up to 2X as many connections as it will have in adulthood. This makes it the perfect opportunity to help shape your baby's future success in both learning and life.
After 5 years, brain eliminates weak connections and strengthens the ones that are reinforced. This process is called pruning and it helps shape your child's brain architecture.
Providing your child with a broad range of
developmental activities helps reinforce fundamental brain connections.
