Your Infant’s Busy Day!
Your infant’s teacher provides a loving and caring day that gives your baby the opportunity to develop both emotionally as well as physically. We focus on:
Interactive playtime is important in child care as a development tool for your infant’s senses. By providing physical exercises with items designed for your infant’s age helps them in learning to crawl, stand and walk. We use various manipulatives with your child such as balls and other toys to further stimulate their motor skills.
With the use of different textures and materials, your child learns about shapes and sizes while building hand-eye coordination. Playing with items such as soft blocks, stacking cups and puzzles assists your infant’s interaction skills, sensory awareness, as well as their fine and large motor skills.
Verbally teaching an infant with sounds and objects helps your child strengthen their growing communication skills. Simply speaking to your infant with facial expressions and to eye contact assists your child with their communication skills. Telling stories and singing songs create further important communication skills.
Social & Emotional Skills
Infants begin to develop trust as their caregiver meets their needs such as changing their diapers when needed, feeding them when they are hungry, and holding them when they cry. When frightened, infants cry and look surprised and afraid. They cry to express anger, pain, and hunger. It’s their way of communicating. They are easily excited or upset. They need to be cradled and comforted.
