Every baby is an individual with special needs, habits, and routines. Parent's preferences and priorities also vary. The director will personally interview each infant parent before a baby's first day to set uo a highly individualized schedule for each child. Parents are asked to update this schedule on a monthly basis to reflect each of their child's continuous growth and development. The established routine may vary slightly from day to day in accordance with a child's needs. Parents and staff consult often at the onset of various stages so that changes are made in a consistent manner, simultaneously at home and school.
Each day a careful record is kept for each parent relating when and how their child ate, slept, drank and was changed. Notes on play habits, developmental milestones and mood are also given, every morning and afternoon; a parent has access to a significant caregiver who can augment the record with personal antidotes. Our director is always available by phone, or in person to discuss concerns and support our parents in every way possible.
Though each infant routine may vary, everyone includes an ample proportion of the following activities:
Feeding: On a schedule consistent with the baby's home schedule, integrating new foods as appropriate with the permission and cooperation of parents.
Sleep: On a regular schedule or as needed by each child, in a personal crib with an establish ritual - patting for some, a special swaddling for others.
Exercise: In accordance with safe, appropriate baby size programs, work on mats and bolsters, strengthen muscles, encouraging flexibility, and having fun!
Sensory Stimulation: Play with mirrors and toys, listening to music, dancing, looking, touching and laughing.
Fresh Air: Whenever possible, children are dressed appropriately and wheeled or carried out doors to explore sand, grass, and sunshine.
Independence: An opportunity to explore a safe environment under watchful eyes, try something new, practice something old, sit back and watch what's happening, and find a quiet corner.
Tender Loving Care: Lots of cuddles and individual attention, a lap to sit in, a bit of rocking when needed, hugs and warm loving words in ample supply.
It is a totally new world when your infant makes an entry into the toddler stage. Things appear more definite, hence the need to talk, walk and build relationships amongst themselves.
You can be certain your 15 month old is well taken care of at Creative Center. At this stage, your yearling wants to see it all, do it all, and have it all. This is a good sign that development is on course. The good news is that, we will always be at your yearling's side when they need us. Every step of the way, we will hold their hands.
It is simple understanding that yearlings learn by relating the results of actions. This in turn enhances language, motor, cognitive and social skills. The numerous ideas floating through their heads are turned into words so as to express themselves in a better manner.
With our yearling care programs, we promote the growth of sharing, cooperation and interaction through safe and secure group play. At our daycare center, we encourage all students to develop their unique gifts and talents. As the yearling better expresses what is on his/her mind, a feeling of confidence is grown from within.
