Supporting Under 3's Through Discovery Play - Introductory

Babies and Toddlers learn through discovery. As they explore the world around them, they make connections and create understandings. Sometimes during this process they do things that drive us crazy (such as pulling all of the blocks off the shelf or tipping out baskets of toys or throwing things!) By understanding and facilitating discovery play in meaningful and authentic ways, we provide under 3’s with the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge and make sense of the world
