Let’s Play on the Floor!


One of the best ways to support your baby’s overall development is by getting down and playing with them on the floor. There is no better place to play and practice tummy time, head lifting, rolling, sitting and crawling, than on a floor that is safe and free of hazards, while under the watchful eyes of a parent or caregiver. Using large colourful foam mats on the floor can make the space more child friendly and remember, they can’t fall off the floor!

Look what we can do together!
