The focus of the “1-2-3 Grow with Me” program is the importance of play for young children. Play is more than just fun. It helps kids to grow in many ways. Play helps children to learn about dealing with
the world around them.

When kids play they are learning many important skills. For example, when they build a block tower, they are developing motor skills, but they are also learning about balance, shapes, and higher order
thinking skills.

This program will have a variety of fun toys that will help your child develop many skills. Most importantly, the program will be fun!
