Play is children's work. In the early days of play, babies develop their gross motor skills (big muscle movements) by rolling and playing on their tummies. Balance and co-ordination are practiced by swinging out at toys.  All play revolves around the 5 senses of touch, smell, hearing, taste and sight. Providing babies and children with the opportunity to explore and play using all their senses enables the brain nerve pathways to connect.
