Though we are slowly easing into the general community quarantine or “new normal,” parents are still worried about their kids’ safety and would prefer to stay home for the meantime. Understandably, many are looking to transition into e-learning or thinking of taking up the role of their child’s teacher.
If you want to set up a playschool or preschool at home, one of the things you can invest on are wooden toys, which can help supplement learning and guide your baby’s development. They are staples of educational systems like Montessori and Waldorf as it promotes sensory exploration and connects children to nature — compared to plastic toys, wood warms to the touch and cools in the air.
