Free movement of their bodies in rich environments provide the strongest experience foundation for understanding paths, distances, and directions intuitively. Opting for walks for toddlers, rather than stroller rides, the use low beds/cots instead of cribs, and seating that does not restrict movement also supports development in this area.
