How to Improve Motor Skills Development in Apollo Beach Infants Through Toys

Posted on 03-21-2014 | Carrie Elwell


Many Apollo Beach parents with newborns are concerned with how to improve motor skills development in their infant. The impact of infant toys on a baby's brain development has received extensive attention in recent years.  Through continued research, a lot has been learned about a child's brain development during its first three years of life. It's also been revealed that a three-year-old toddler's brain is actually twice as active as that of an adult's!

As most of your child's development takes place in this three-year window, it is crucial to provide the right type of early interaction and stimulation for healthy brain development throughout these formative years. Infant toys that engage all of your child's senses offer excellent early stimulation that will spur on healthy child development.

Because your child is developing at such a rapid pace, it's also vital that all caregivers understand the importance of the right educational toys and activities for your little one. Our Brainwaves Curriculum is designed specifically to address the needs of infants in this developmental phase, giving them the ideal environment to safely learn about the world. By encouraging curiosity, creativity and problem solving while meeting their cognitive, physical and emotional needs, the infants on this curriculum build a foundation for a very bright future.

Early Milestones

Your child achieves many significant milestones throughout their first year and it is an exciting and amazing time for both infants and parents alike. It's because of this that you have to provide your toddler with age appropriate toys, as it can be frustrating for any infant to play with toys that are too difficult for them to interact with.

During your child's first year, try to provide them with toys that interact with all five senses - even smell! With regards to newborn babies, you will be best advised to concentrate on toys that focus on sight, sound and touch.
