  1. Exploratory Play
    Exploratory Play

    In exploratory play, children use their senses (such as sight, touch, and hearing) to explore the world around them. This type of play can help support a child’s understanding of cause and effect. Children often engage in exploratory play when they receive unclear evidence about why something happens.

  2. Fine Motor Skills
    Fine Motor Skills

    Early experiences with art — including drawing, cutting, and writing — allow children to develop their fine motor skills, which use the small muscles of the hand, fingers, and thumb. These skills lay the foundation for later academic achievement.
