Approaches to Learning - Infants (Birth to 12 Months)
From the moment they're born, babies begin learning about the world around them. They learn through their senses - tasting, touching, smelling, listening and looking at anything and everything. They also learn through movement, as they try new actions like playing with their fingers and toes, raising their hands for "so big" and putting everything in their mouth. Make sure to periodically rotate toys and materials to encourage new experiences.
