Cinco Ranch Day care: Sensory development in your child

Posted on 01-26-2015


All parents want to provide the very best child care for their new infant. In order to accomplish this it is essential to understand how your child will experience sensory development. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Cinco Ranch West in Katy, Texas will assist you in understanding this developmental process.


Your newborn infant will not be able to hear softer sounds. However, there has been significant hearing development while in utero. This will progress until about eight months when your child will have the ability to hear nearly everything.


When an infant is born, there is usually a preference for sweeter tastes. The mother’s breast milk, which tends to be sweet, is your child’s food source for the first few months. It is not until about one year that your child will have a fully sensitive taste palate.


Your newborn infant’s sense of smell is highly refined, and can easily smell the difference between the milk of the mother, and someone else’s breast milk. Of all the senses smell develops the slowest. A child of this age will only have the ability to smell and identify certain scents and foods.


Upon birth, your child may not be able to see a full spectrum of color, or see at a distance. At five months a child should be able to see the entire color spectrum.


At birth your child can already essentially experience touch. Using the mouth and hands your child can feel hot, cold, pain and pressure.

Your day care child’s sensory development occurs at a rapid pace. Much like your child’s brain development, it is essential to nurture this to its fullest potential. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Cinco Ranch West in Katy, Texas your child will progress with our AdvancED™ accredited program.
