That's why we coo, cuddle, rock and do everything possible to bond with your baby and develop a sense of trust. Through simple games like peekaboo and reading stories throughout the day, our loving teachers begin the foundational work for later learning and help infants grow in areas such as:
-Language development using books, songs and activities that match your child's development level.
-Cognitive development using activities like peekaboo, hunt and find, and shape-sorting toys.
-Motor Skill development grasping toys, tummy time, and toys to push and pull around the room.
-Sensory development touching items with various textures and feeling materials in the sensory bin.
-Rest and nap time
Our specially designed infant daycare rooms are places where babies feel safe, secure and happy. Rooms are divided into general interest areas that meet an infant's need to move, explore, express and relax. Personal cribs, separate areas for changing and feeding, and our No Outdoor Shoes policy, which requires that all shoes be changed to indoor shoes when entering an infant classroom, ensure clean playing, eating and sleeping spaces.But as much love as we give, we never forget that you are your child s most important teacher. So we'll work with you, give you daily reports and offer tips on how to reinforce what your child learns in his or her time with us.
