At Apple Hill Academy daycare center, our babies love to use stacking toys because the colors are quite attractive, and the experience is challenging. As babies try to figure out what goes together and how things fit, they are learning hand-eye coordination as well as the concept of relative size. The activity of balancing different sized objects on top of one another teaches babies at our childcare center to learn to sort and stack from biggest to smallest!
Organizing and stacking different sized objects is a natural part of a child’s growth and development. There are many different developmental stages in a toddler’s brain. We want to make sure that all the milestones are being met, and we try to nurture them along the way. Then, as our babies and preschool children grow up, we can share in their joy as life’s wonderful opportunities get “stacked in their favor!”
