Playtime positioning

Playtime is an integral part of early childhood development. The Squiggles Early Activity System gives children the gift of play while their individual postural needs are met through the Early Activity System’s innovative support system.

The Squiggles Early Activity System focuses on five positions to encourage muscle and bone development; supine, prone, side lying, upright and four point kneeling, designed to enhance the infants ability to play, grow and learn.
