Best Flash Cards For 0, 1, 2 and 3-Year-Olds

There are many types of baby flash cards. Which is the right one to use and when?

Is your child 0 to 3 years old?

Your child’s most important early learning years for your child is the age of 0, 1, 2, and 3 years old.

  1. What are the most suitable flashcards based on age?

  2. When to introduce flash cards and effectively teach my baby/toddler?

Most parents think you start with alphabets and "1,2,3" flashcards first. Yes, these are one of the flash cards you use but not the first ones to introduce. 

Let's explore what the BEST RECOMMENDED choice of early learning flashcards chosen by us are based on right brain education method.

Baby Flash cards For Newborns & 1 Year Olds

Let's start with flashcards for 0-1 years old, and 1 to 3 years old:

1. Learning Flashcards for newborns below 1 years old (0 to 3 months old)

The visual sensory of a newborn is the least developed.  Your baby can see only black and white, and as they develop their colour spectrum, they will begin to see the red colour. You first start with Infant stimulation flash cards (black, white, and red flashcards) with high contrast shapes and patterns, from newborn to 3 months old. By the third month, your baby will be able to see the full-colour spectrum.

You can start teaching them new words or vocabulary and math.

For math, you start with Dot flash cards. Normally known as "Math Red Dot Flashcards." For math, you start teaching them "quantity recognition." The red dots on the card represents the true values or quantity. You also can be creative by replacing the red dots with some other objects that are attractive to keep your child's attention. 

2. Learning Flashcards for 1 year olds

There are 2 types of flashcards to teach your 1 year old. It's the picture/words flashcards and math flashcards (dots and numerals).

For Math, your child should learn:

  1. Quantity recognition/True value in Dots.

  2. Equations in Dots (addition, subtraction, multiplication).

  3. Then continue with Numerals like 1, 2, 3,... .

  4. Equations in Numerals (addition, subtraction, and multiplication).

As for the picture/words flashcards, it is to introduce to your child basic topics like:

  1. Colours

  2. Shape

  3. Size

  4. Space recognition (front, back, up, down)

  5. Comparison (tall, short, big, small...)

  6. Time

  7. many more...

3. Learning Flashcards for 2 and 3 year olds.

As your child gets older, you can continue to show them more challenging words, and pictures. Do keep in mind, that your child does not know whether the flashcard you are showing is difficult or easy to comprehend.

Whatever you show or exposed to your child, they will learn. Never underestimate their innate capabilities.

You may introduce to your child "Reading flashcards".

  1. Phonics Reading flashcards

  2. Sight Words (Dolce Words) flashcards

  3. Most common words used in the English language.


Your child is smarter than you think.

Every child is unique and has different talents. Do not limit your child to just simple baby flashcards. Go with your child's competency. If your 1-year-old child can handle a 3-year-old child's level, go ahead and teach your child accordingly.

Do not limit your child's potential.


Flashing cards are all a process or sequence, for example, dot cards come first then come numeral cards. What is most important is knowing what flashcard topic comes first and what you should teach next. What we mention is the right sequence on how you should teach your child math and vocabulary.

Flashcards are proven a highly effective early learning tool to teach your baby. It is recommended to follow a proper flashcard program because it has a proven system to guide you. We believe the flash card method works very well.
