Education: Babies & Toddlers

Raise a Reader from Babyhood


Educational initiatives to assure children that learn to read by the third grade abound at the national, state and local levels. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to realize that reading is the most important educational skill a child can possess. Here are some tips to help raise a reader.

Tub Talk with Toddlers


There are lots of ways to stimulate language development in your baby or toddler. Since he spends so much time in the tub, it’s a great place to begin chatting it up!

Socialization and Your Baby


Play groups and classes offer young children a different type of interaction from that of the home setting. Observation and imitation of peers are key to helping your baby develop her social skills.
