Your baby’s first year of life is an amazing time, filled with discovery and enormous growth. At Kidz City, we understand how delicate and complex the early stages of life are for an infant. Providing a warm, positive environment and establishing a relationship with the world is vital to their development. In addition to cuddling, nurturing and attending to your child's basic needs, our teachers are also making sure each child experience activities that will help stimulate your baby’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical development.
Through care giving interactions, our caregivers will frequently talk, sing songs and interact with your baby. Once your baby is 4 months and older we will start our infant curriculum. This will include several activities that will focus on the following areas.
•Sensory activities •Gross and fine motor development •Social and emotional development •Movement •Language Development
Your baby's transition from home to our care should be comfortable and easy for both you and your child. This is why we will continue to follow your baby’s personal schedule, including their napping and eating times. Also, we have an open door policy for our parents. Parents can take comfort knowing they can stop in any time to visit.
