What We Learn

Cognitive Development

Mango’s Place uses high contrast manipulatives to help strengthen visual development in young infants. Infants will explore their senses with sensory blocks, colorful playmats and can listen along with a variety of classical music, sing-along songs and instruments.

Tummy Time

Encouraging infants to build muscles and coordination needed for rolling over, crawling, reaching and later standing and walking. Supervised tummy time is crucial in the earliest months of an infant’s development. Teachers are trained to encourage the infant’s ability to lift their heads using high contrast manipulatives and moving objects to keep them engaged.

Visual Tracking

Teachers will encourage visual tracking at each milestone by using high contrast flash cards, mirrors and light up manipulatives. Helping infants master the skill of tracking moving objects assists in the develop of hand eye coordination, which is a skill later used for reading and writing.
