Infant Care (6+ Weeks)
Nurturing Infant Care
Just Like Home develops positive relationships in a safe nurturing environment. Our specially trained infant teachers build a bond of trust with your baby and with you. We provide so much more than care taking. All of our interactions with your infant are designed to develop large and fine motor skills along with cognitive, social, emotional, and language skills.
To keep you completely informed, we provide a log of your child's feedings, diapering, sleeping, and activities at the end of each day.
Your Baby's Day
The infant classroom at Just Like Home Early Learning Center is equipped with areas designed to stimulate your child's learning. In addition to providing standard care and play time, throughout the day, your infant's teacher will engage your child through:
Movement: Infants use their senses and bodies to learn about the world. Our Movement Area allows your baby to move and participate in teacher-guided physical development exercises. In this area you might see soft climbers, mats, balls, push and pull toys, instruments, bean bags and baskets.
Exploration: Manipulating objects and interacting with different materials helps babies learn early math and science concepts like size, shape and texture, and practice key skills like hand-eye coordination. In the Exploration Area, your baby will play with soft blocks, big cars and trucks, knobbed puzzles, nesting cups and more.
Relaxation: The Cozy Area is a safe place where your infant can feel rested and refreshed. In this space, infants and teachers quietly read books about people, animals and familiar objects and snuggle together with pillows, soft toys and other cuddly objects.
Our Infant Program abides by state mandated teacher-to-child ratios, so you can be confident your baby will experience a nurturing and calming environment, focused on developing positive and trusting relationships.
