From their earliest days, babies respond to contrasts, colours, sounds, and movements. How they integrate these various experiences will influence their growth and development across many areas, including creativity. In this way, creativity is ageless and timeless. Possibly more important, creativity can be acquired and fostered.

Playing creatively with babies, even newborns fosters many aspects of development.

Creative child care promotes many primary physical skills. It is the way that babies learn about their world, thereby allowing them mental development and new ways of thinking, engaging, discovering, and problem-solving.
