Explore the world through multi-sensory stimulation

Babies use their senses to learn and discover the world since birth. Babies with greater exposure to sensory stimulation show better mental development. At this stage, parents may create different forms of sensory simulation for their babies, such as hanging boldly-coloured cloth books around the crib or placing toys and objects with different shapes, textures, colours or sound effects.

They may also read stories or sing nursery rhymes to the babies. While the little ones may not understand, parents' voices will promote their auditory development, allowing them to recognize the sound and rhythm of a language while enjoying the fun of reading and music.
