Our Children love to play and learn!

WHEN YOUR CHILD BUILDS WITH BLOCKS,  they are learning many important skills such as: creativity as they create a unique structure of his/her own design; physical development as they develop  motor skills; and thinking as they explore relationships among object size, shape, and balance.


WHEN YOU SHARE A BOOK WITH YOUR LITTLE ONE, you are developing social and emotional skills through parent/child bonding; language and literacy skills as they learn new vocabulary, enjoy hearing stories, and learns to “read” the pictures to see what is happening; and creativity as you supporting the development of their imagination.

In the infant toddler room here at New Pisgah Day Care, We engage your child’s senses by keeping them hands on with a lof of activities.  Young babies learn by using all of their senses.  They like play that involves materials with a variety of textures, as well as lots of physical contact, singing, and dancing.


Older toddlers may have the motor skills to manipulate a brush, but infants and younger children will enjoy using their hands to paint. Young toddlers like to “finger paint” with their food, although some parents may try to discourage this common activity. When toddlers no longer put things in their mouths, they are ready to use non-toxic paint on waxed paper. Besides their fingers, toddlers can use brushes and other blunt hand tools to make different marks.


Talk to children about things that are the same shape as yarn. Yarn is long like spaghetti.  Children could use their safety scissors and cut different sizes of spaghetti shaped sizes. Children who develop creative ways of playing with yarn, safety scissors and play doh will never run out of exciting ways to add to their entertainment.  All children grow fast. They need as much motivation as possible during their informative years. Parents, childcare workers and family members can help children learn and have fun at the same time using yarn.  The toddlers her at New Pisgah Day Care used yarn as spaghetti. We talked about what spaghetti looks like and tastes like.


Water-play is more than just fun. If children play and experiment with water, their cognitive development, vocabulary and social skills will all benefit.  Water play has different benefits depending on the child’s age. As they change and grow, children learn new things about water, and new ways to play in it. Babies feel it on their skin when bathed in the early days, then start to splash and pour. Nursery and primary schools encourage water-play and experimentation as it’s known to stimulate children’s development. By learning about things ‘floating’ or ‘sinking’, children increase their vocabularies whilst also having fun.
