Wrap up

Learning Before the Classroom

It’s back-to-school season; however, just because your child’s not old enough for the classroom doesn’t mean he or she is too young to learn. Learn how to nurture every aspect of your toddler’s developing brain.

Smell: What’s that Smell?

Soak cotton balls in various smelly things like vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, soap and more. Put them in cups and have your child smell them. Work on developing vocabulary to describe the differences between them.
