Your Infant’s Day
The experiences infants have during the early months and years of life are crucial to healthy brain development. Lots of personal attention and interaction between our teachers and your infant will promote basic cognitive and social skills. Singing, reading and talking are just some of the behaviors that support development during this critical stage.
Physical development of coordinated motor skills is a large part of an infant’s first year. Building Bodes activities help build physcial strength and motor coordination with daily experiences that allow infants to practice fine-motor skills, hand/eye coordination, hand and full body movement and more.
Infants begin to use and integrate their senses right away to explore their new world. Through Brain Games activities, children use one or more of their developing senses related to memory, spatial orientation, and cause and effect.
Language and communication development is most profound during a child’s first three years of life while the brain is developing and maturing. First Words activities help develop skills in an environment rich with sounds, sights, and consistent exposure to speech and language.
Feelings of confidence, pride, trust, friendship and humor are all part of social-emotional development. Making Friends activities promote early social interactions and conversations, develop facial expressions to communicate and support self-identity.
