A Wonderful Start For Your Infant
For infants, every loving interaction — whether it’s singing a lullaby or rocking them to sleep — is an opportunity to support their emotional development. We focus on providing this individualized, nurturing care while also introducing the fundamentals of learning to your infant.
Our infant suite is the perfect developmentally appropriate environment for little ones as they learn to move, pull up, roll over and eventually crawl.
Our infant curriculum creates a solid foundation for your little one’s future growth and development. By creating strong bonds, learning through play and stimulating their five senses, even our youngest students are encouraged to explore the world around them in a safe and nurturing environment. Primary caregivers introduce a theme-based curriculum, which is enhanced with enrichment programs such as Singing Sprouts, Spanish Sprouts and Signing Sprouts.
- Fine Motor: Infants develop their fine motor skills by clapping their hands to music, picking up finger foods, and holding onto their favorite toys to build hand and finger dexterity along with hand-eye coordination.
- Language: From hearing to processing sounds to palate development, language skills flourish by expressing wants and needs, repetition and the use of American Sign Language. This reduces pre-verbal frustration by closing the gap between their desire and ability to communicate while having their needs understood.
- Movement in Space: When babies are crawling, exploring their environment and taking their first steps, they are getting stronger from head to toe, and it shows!
- Social & Emotional: Each smile, embrace and encouraging word builds trust and helps children thrive in social settings, which sets them up for healthy relationships.
- Cognitive: By stimulating brain function, infants are invited to become investigators and cheer on their discoveries, which builds skills such as object permanence and rationalization.
