Infant: 6 to 12 months

Individualized Care and Education

From the quality interactions your baby’s caregiver has with them, individual lesson plans are developed to ensure that age-appropriate development and learning objectives are being met.  During this age, our caregivers work closely with parents to develop an appropriate eating and sleeping schedule to ensure your baby’s health and development.  This information is outlined in an Individual Care Plan, which your child’s caregiver and all caregivers that interact with your child follow.  As always, we recognize that parents know their child best and we welcome input and cooperation to ensure we are exceeding your expectations.

Fine and Gross Motor Exploration

Development of small and large muscles and skills such as rolling from side-to-side and sitting up are a big part of our Infant Room daily schedule.  We will help your baby strengthen motor skills by playing with cradle gyms and rattles and crawling over soft cushions.  From holding up their heads to pulling themselves up to a standing position, we work with your baby to help him or her acquire these skills.

Language Exploration

Our caregivers use facial expressions, verbal cues, and a variety of interactions to provide your baby the building blocks of language.  Peek-a-boo, patty cake, and pointing out simple objects of interest, like noises, people, animals, and body parts, are integrated throughout the day.  Talking to your baby and reading books together is a significant part of their daily routine. Our caregivers understand the importance of these interactions and how essential they are to language development.

Baby Signs® encourages communication with children who may not yet be able to express themselves verbally, giving your infant a way to communicate their wants and needs through simple hand signs.  Baby Signs® books are read aloud or sung while caregivers simultaneously use hand signs.  Signs utilized include simple requests such as “milk,” “more,” “all done,” and “eat” as well as many others.
