Toddlers (12 - 33 months)
Children are full of questions and excited to learn. One of the first steps in learning is exploring. Exploring lets your toddler learn about different objects and how to solve problems. It helps your toddler answer his own questions about how things work.
As he explores, he gets to use all his senses, which help him discover and learn how things are different. He also uses his whole body to explore. Toddlers love to run, climb, and jump to get to a new object to investigate!
Everything is of interest to your toddler, and it is natural that he wants to test his surroundings. Although it is important to let him explore, it should always be in a safe place with you or another caring adult at his side.
