Early years Birth to 3 years

From birth to the age of three, a baby’s brain goes through massive growth. It is constantly reproducing new cells and connections necessary to help with learning. Here are some ideas to help your baby’s brain development:

Games and music

Play games like peek-a-boo. Sing songs to them and give them noisy toys to shake. Playing with pegs in an ice-cream container is a real favourite.

It is black and white

Try to look for pictures with black and white images for your child to look at. This is visually stimulating and helps nerve cells multiply.

Talk, talk, talk

If you talk to your baby as much as possible, describing your everyday activities as you go about them, they hear sounds and words that will strengthen their language development.
