Intellectual Baby (Ages 0-2)

Intellectual education is intense at infancy as babies explore the world with their senses and ideas begin to shape. Babies build knowledge by organizing, studying, observing related objects, and thinking about where an object is in peek-a-boo. Even laughing to communicate joy builds knowledge in babies.

Babies are born with the innate ability to understand the laws of mathematics and science. Even as early as 2 1/2 months, infants turn to look at the sound (physical science) of a closing door and know that if two objects bump, one will move. By 3 to 5 months, an infant can track the number of moving objects (spatial ability), understand more or less (arithmetic), and see shape and color differences (geometry).
