Our infant and toddler developmental programs for children ages 2 to 36 months are purposely designed for social interaction, physical activity, cognitive learning and plenty of time for play!
The first year of a child’s life is one of the most important moments of our development. This is when we establish our cognitive, emotional, and physical foundations that will carry into our adulthood.
During this program our team of experts will help through the process of separation between parent and child creating a sense of autonomy and independence.
- Independence & autonomy. Building independence and autonomy allows your little one to create a sense of mastery over their body and their environment. Fostering independence supports critical thinking, encourages intrinsic motivation and inspires confidence.
- Motor skills. Fine and Gross motor skill development is important for a baby’s physical growth. Developing fine motor skills assist in building muscles that will be used for grabbing toys, using utensils and eventually holding a pencil. Developing gross motor skills will assist in building muscles that help with crawling, walking, head control, and balance.
- Language skills, communication and socialization. Language development during the first 12 months of a baby’s life is an imperative part of their development. During these critical months a baby learns how to communicate, express, and understand their feelings. During the program we introduce baby signs and gestures in conjunction with spoken words with the intention of creating richer communication. Baby signs also helps reduce frustration involved in trying to interpret the child’s pre-verbal needs.
- Sensory Stimulation. Infants and toddlers learn about the world around them and other skills through their senses. Sensory play develops and stimulates a baby’s sense of touch, hearing, smell, taste, and sight. It is a great way for babies to create, investigate, and explore the world around them. This type of development aids in enhancing memory functioning and allows babies to learn important sensory attributes such as hot, cold, wet, sticky, dry, etc.
