Infant Care at The Learning Center
At The Learning Center, we’re pleased to welcome your infant into our nurturing environment. We understand that when there’s a change in a child’s care arrangement there’s a period of adjustment for everyone involved. The transition from home care to outside care can be trying for an infant and for the family that loves them.
As you and your child adjust to spending your days apart, we will interact with him or her and work to establish a caring relationship. We know that we can’t fill your shoes, but we’ll do our best to help your infant feel comfortable and secure.
Helping Your Growing Infant Meet Milestones
As young children grow and thrive, we encourage them to achieve age-appropriate milestones. We give growing infants plenty of floor space for tummy time. Our infant care providers encourage them to roll over, lift up their heads and reach out for colorful toys. These efforts help infants develop strength and flexibility to support early crawling and movement challenges. We communicate with parents about each child’s activities and efforts so they can maintain consistency at home.
Our Infant Care Program Guidelines
Our care providers work hard to keep infants happy. We believe that parents are critical to accomplishing this goal. We coordinate our efforts with families to minimize inconsistencies between an infant’s home and care environments. Our infant care guidelines help us keep your infant’s time with us running smoothly.
Parents must bring an adequate supply of diapers, wipes, and prepared meals.
We request that families provide written information on their infant’s schedule.
We appreciate communication and request feedback about The Learning Center and your child’s daily activities.
We invite parents to call or visit the school at any time to see how their infant is doing.
Learning Through Play
As in all of our programs, we encourage infants to learn through play, exploration, and other activities. Play is particularly important when motivating infants to achieve.
