Infant Care (6+ Weeks)
Nurturing and Responsive Infant Care
Highly responsive care, early in life is critical to your child’s success in school, relationships and in life. St. Paul's provides a safe infant care environment where your baby will not only be loved and cared for—but where our highly trained teachers will work to stimulate your baby’s cognitive, emotional and physical development through movement, exploration and one-on-one nurturing.
Your Baby’s Day
The infant-child care room is equipped with areas designed to stimulate your baby’s learning. In addition to providing standard care and play time, throughout the day, your infant’s teacher will engage your child through:
Movement: Infants use their senses and bodies to learn about the world. Our Movement Area allows your baby to move and participate in teacher-guided physical development exercises. In this area you might see soft climbers, mats, balls, push and pull toys, instruments, bean bags and baskets.
Exploration: Manipulating objects and interacting with different materials helps babies learn early math and science concepts like size, shape and texture, and practice key skills like hand-eye coordination. In the Exploration Area, your baby will play with soft blocks, big cars and trucks, knob puzzles, nesting cups and more.
Relaxation: The Cozy Area is a safe place where your infant can feel rested and refreshed. In this space, infants and teachers quietly read books about people, animals and familiar objects and snuggle together with pillows, soft toys and other cuddly objects.
