From day care to home care in Mason: How to help boost your child’s brain development

Posted on 06-23-2014

The first five years of your child’s life is a time of development and learning where your child’s brain evolves from a collection of billions of unconnected brain cells into the complex structure he or she will carry into adulthood. In order to boost this brain development and to maximize your child’s mental capacity, you must provide the right stimulation which actively supports the formation of neural synapses. Here are some activities you can try at home:

  • Bonding activities: Bonding activities, whether play time, bath time or simply cuddling with your infant, create love and trust that are essential to learning. Put some time aside each day to simply relax and be with your child in an environment where you can have fun and play.
     
  • Story time: Reading to your infant helps improve language and reading skills as well as memory. Engage your child in a book by pointing out pictures, repeating words and, if your child is older, asking them questions regarding what the story is about.
     
  • Building blocks: Brightly colored, age-appropriate blocks are a great way for your child to learn about the relationships between objects and how to build structures. Show your child how different blocks fit together and can be made into interesting shapes.
     
  • What is this? Encouraging exploration helps your child learn about new things while encouraging curiosity. Ask your child “what is this?” and point to something distinct while naming the object. Even pre-verbal children will quickly start to recognize different words associated with different objects. This game helps build language and memory skills. You can combine this activity with a trip to Pine Hill Lake Park, where you can walk along relaxing paved pathways, exploring interesting plants, flowers and animals together.
