Bringing an infant into the childcare environment can be delicate, and should be handled by the expert support of our school management team. We're attentive to each infant and create an environment in which the infant remains comfortable so that they may thrive. In each infant room, we cultivate the teacher-child bond, as this builds a sense of confidence in the child. Senses are developing at this time, so we incorporate, sensorial activities into our curriculum.
We've trained our teachers to use our sign language program, as a means to communicate with those that can't speak yet. Infants are able to associate a movement of their hands and/or arms with a need or want. This gives infants a sense of control of their environment and a sense of well being as they begin to communicate. Helping our infants to relax and be stress-free helps encourage them to flourish within the environment.
