What a wonderful week we had, the Infants had fun exploring with the color red using their little fingers, paint, and plain white paper. Sensory activities for babies are very important for their development, it enhances memory understanding, and builds nerve connections in the brain. The toddlers had a lot of fun exploring in water on one of our hot days this week, we brought out the sensory tables, spray bottles and bubbles. Water play is huge for development because it helps with release of energy, motor skills, social skills, and can stimulate creativity and imagination. 

Next week we will begin learning about our great country USA!!
