Diverse Learning Environments
At this stage in a child’s life, they rely on learning through their five senses, using their hands to explore their surroundings.
They begin to develop trust and begin to socialize through smiling. As they begin to communicate their needs, children develop self-confidence, and they begin to understand that words have meaning and that people will respond to their sounds. Physical movement consists of sitting, crawling, and learning to transfer things from one hand to another.
At Vada's Creative World, our infant childcare program focuses on your baby’s development of cognitive skills by encouraging your child to play with various soft musical toys, washable stuffed animals, and rattles
Our caregivers provide tender loving care, cuddles, referring to children by their name, and communication between the caregiver and the child, being nurturing and encouraging.
Talking, singing, reading, and naming objects on a daily basis. As well as cardboard picture books, a variety of musical tapes and puppets.
Fine and gross motor skills are practiced through grasping toys, rattles, teething rings, play gyms, vinyl mats and push and pull toys.
Our staff will meet all the needs of your child which includes: feeding, diapering, sleeping, and LOVE.
Children develop reasoning and problem-solving skills. They begin to think for themselves and work out problems mentally rather than through trial and error. They begin to develop stronger social bonds, communication, and reading skills. Vocabulary, memory, and speech are increased by labeling items in books and asking questions. Physically eye-hand coordination, pre-writing skills, large muscle skills, and gross motor skills are increasing.
At Vadas Creative World our childcare program focuses on your baby’s development:
Allows children to attempt to work out problems on their own, create and explore. Suggested materials include books, large pegs to the group, sort and stack, large crayons, markers paints and paint brushes.
Our caregivers encourage cooperative and individual learning opportunities as well as creative expression. Provide opportunities for dramatic play with simple themes and props. Children are allowed to make choices on what activities they do.
We believe in talking positively to your child in statements that allow your child to respond back. Introduce your child to written words and other literacy-based materials, and sing throughout the day. We allow child to make choices on activities. We seek to establish eye contact when talking to children and use picture books and short story books with repetition and rhymes, poems, and fingerplays.
We provide a safe place that allows children to run, throw, catch, jump, climb, ride on riding toys, and make choices in activities.
