  • Understand your toddler's play

    Toddlers are wired to explore. Help them make the discoveries that are essential to their developement

The discovery years

As they grow out of their babyhood and into a toddler, the activities and stimulus they encounter at home and out-and-about can have a huge impact on the way your child approaches life. Curiosity, determination, focus and an appetite for learning (and fun!) can all be fostered and developed at this flourishing time

  • Toddlers toddle

    It's time to master control of body and limbs, building a base for the fine-motor activities that come later.

  • Time to explore

    As your child learns to separate from you, allow her the time and space to make her own discoveries. Toddlers are no different to adults: we all learn best when solving problems of our own choosing.
  • Little scientists

    Toddlers love to experiment. Whether it's destruction-testing a toy or endlessly repeating an action, it's how they make sense of the world.
