Mostly like the mother mentioned during her observation that play has given Sarah wider improvement in growth and movement for her age and stages. Sarah started showing greater interest in her play and music. And she enjoys rattles other toys Sarah likes to watch simple pop-up puppets. During her observation there was plenty of soft books that have different noises which Sarah enjoys the noise and music by the end of the second observation Sarah played finger games such as This Little Piggy with her mother, her mother encouraged to begin to grab small soft toys, especially the ones on the carpet floor. Sarah is a very sensitive girl managing with another child care, Sarah has learnt by pressing a button she can make a chicken pop-up. Sarah was forced to develop a new scheme which base on the later experience and is called accommodation, it happens when children realise that their schemers do not fit, example Sarah drinks orange juice out of a red beaker she develops a scheme that all red beakers have orange juice in them, Sarah is then given a red beaker that has milk in it, Sarah now has new information that shows her that scheme does not fit. Eventually Sarah will come to understand that beakers are used for many drinks and that beakers come in many colours.

During discussion with Sarah`s mother, she said at first children do not have a mental picture of the world, they learn through their senses
