A great way to supplement your toddler’s cognitive development is through educational videos. Children over 2 years old can benefit from listening to classical music and from the repetition of words and shapes. All of these can easily be found through Baby Einstein videos. Luckily, many seasons of Baby Einstein are available at the touch of your fingertips with your BCLS library card!
Begin your journey by selecting the Research and Learn button on the homepage. If you scroll through the page, you will see the icon for Access Video on Demand: Just for Kids link. With a quick entry of your library card number, you will be taken to a wonderful world of educational videos and charming animation as your children’s favorite stories come to life.
In the “New for Early Learners” section you will find many seasons of Baby Einstein classics. Your little ones will learn sight words with the help of some puppet pals, the greatest hits from classical composers, an exploration of shapes, colors and animal sounds, and more. You can join your toddler and engage with the content, allowing them to share the experience of hearing words and colors out loud as well as on the screen. Like reading aloud to your child, this will assist with their language skills as well as early cognitive development
