Our Approach to Infant Care
Every day is filled with exciting new discoveries for infants. That’s why we created a safe and nurturing environment for infants to grow in. Each infant classroom boasts low teacher-child ratios to maintain the level of care and attention needed at this age.
Throughout the day, your child will be given love and encouragement. We also provide a daily infant report, keeping you up to date on your child’s diaper changes, feedings, and development. Our teachers know that every child is unique, which means they will have distinct care needs.
Providing affectionate care will create the open, welcoming environment young children need to learn and grow. We know that babies love to hear language, creating an early foundation for literacy and language development. Our infant curriculum also encourages interaction with the world around them, building key social skills.
The Infant Room
Every Discovery Point infant room is bright, cheerful, and safe. We provide an open play area, creating a space for infants to explore, discover, and develop. The room is designed to allow teachers to have a clear view of all infants in their care.
Filled with young crawlers, we make sure our infant rooms have soft edges to encourage safe exploration of the world around them. The play area offers age appropriate toys and materials designed for development and learning—all kept within reach for crawling infants. We make sure all toys are sanitized throughout the day and sheets are washed at the end of each day.
Our infant room includes a designated space for each child where personal items such as formula, food, diapers, and baby wipes can be stored.
