The Why Play? series suggest play activities for children in the following age groups: babies (0 – 12 months), toddlers (12-30 months), and preschoolers (30-60 months). The series is based on the content of the Encyclopedia on Early Childhood Development. All partners are thankful for the valued contributions of family support practitioners who reviewed the series.
The Babies (0 – 12 months) pamphlet suggests science-based and culturally-appropriate play activities. Parents and caregivers can use these activities to support their baby’s play, help their baby feel safe, support their baby’s healthy brain development, and build a strong relationship with their baby.
