Ready, Set, Play!

Baby Playtime

Look for signs that your child is ready to play. Do they look at you and kick their feet? Make funny sounds? Reach out their arms to you? Try to read their actions and follow their lead, making eye-contact and talking to them while you do!

See what your child is learning

When you read your child’s signals and follow their lead, you’re having a back-and-forth conversation. Building on what they do and say while going back and forth is one of the most important ways you can support their learning.
