Infant Day Care provides a structured environment for your infant to learn and develop everyday educational skills. Daycares offer highly trained child care professionals who typically have formal backgrounds in early childhood learning. It’s usually more affordable than a nanny, and according to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, about one caregiver is responsible for every three babies if there are six infants in a group. That means at daycare, your infant is always being closely watched and cared for by a prepared expert.
Here are a few of the benefits of enrolling your infant into daycare:
It socializes your child.
Most obviously, putting your infant in daycare exposes them to a socialized environment. Chances are your infant will interact with a variety of other infants, children and adults that they wouldn’t meet at your home. At a very young age, children can start developing the foundation for relationships and friendships, which is why socialization is extremely important.
It’s convenient for modernized families.
It’s 2018, and many modern families are in a financial situation where both parents must work throughout the day to support their families. By putting your infant in daycare, you can have peace of mind and return to work as soon as possible, knowing your child will be in good hands and will develop the educational skills they need for his or her age. You also won’t have to worry about hiring a nanny or making grandma or grandpa responsible for your infant.
Your child is exposed to an educated child care professional.
Let’s be honest: How many of us have formal education in child care? Not many, which is why we hold our team of teachers at the highest of standards.
These daycare professionals have worked with many children, and they know what can work best for your infant’s learning and motor
Most daycare centers will provide a variety of activities for your infant to participate in. Our fun and daily educational activities include the following:
- Developmental growth exploration through age-appropriate material and toys
- Language and communication strengthening
- Intimate activities such as rocking, singing, laughing and hugging
These are, of course, all activities you can do at home with your child, but our highly trained staff will make sure to put all of their attention into your infant when you place them in our care.
