Finding Infant Care in Canton and Preparing for Going Back to Work

Whether you are excited about going back to work or dreading the transition, our infant care in Canton will bring you peace of mind. Our team at Discovery Point Hickory Flat is passionate about providing comprehensive care in a safe and educational environment. Keep reading below to learn about the care we offer our youngest students.

For children between the ages of 6 weeks and 12 months, our infant care encourages learning, growth, and play. Infants are able to learn new concepts and movements in the early stages of life. Our teachers encourage this through play and interaction with peers. Your little one will be in good hands with us.

Here are the main elements of our infant program:

  • Teachers trained in early childhood education
  • Small class sizes
  • Daily reports on feedings, diaper changes, and naps
  • Highchairs and cribs in the classroom
  • Structured, yet flexible daily routine

3 Tips for Going Back to Work

With your return to work approaching, you may start feeling anxious or stressed. However, there are a few things you can do ahead of time to make the transition easier. Here are three tips for going back to work:

  • Request flexibility. Rather than jumping into a full week of work, ask for flexibility at the start. You can work from home for a few days or work on an altered schedule to ease back into your routine.
  • Prepare for pumping at work. If you plan to pump during the day, speak with your boss about creating a space and schedule for pumping.
  • Make time for yourself. It is important to decompress and relax. Doing yoga, taking a bubble bath, and watching your favorite show are great ways to de-stress.
