Tips for Families with Infants and Toddlers

When you talk, read, and sing with your child - even before they can use words - you're helping them become both smarter and happier. Research shows that talking, reading and singing with your child every day from birth helps build their brains as well as important language, math and reading skills for use in school and beyond.

You probably naturally talk to your baby about the events of the day. Keep doing it, and do more! The more words they hear from you, the better prepared they will be to learn. You are your baby's first teacher!
