Infant Program (6 wks - 1 year old)
Our goal is to build and develop a secure and trusting relationship with your child, which is a primary task for infants. We foster this trust through sensitive responses to infants’ signals, and mutual delight in interactions. At Chai Infant Center we provide a safe environment where your baby will not only be nurtured and loved, 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. As infants take to their feet, a whole new world is opened, and we will be there to help you, help them walk, talk, and begin developing positive relationships with others.
In addition to nurturing your child and their basic care, we at Chai Infant Center encourage the child’s mental and physical development. Your child will experience activities that incorporate the natural routine, such as; feeding and play which are reinforced through development without disrupting their daily schedule. Our teachers are trained in “baby sign language”, which is a great communication tool for non-speaking babies (approx. 6 mos. through 10-15 mos.).
Our infant program builds cognitive, language, gross motor skills and social skills. Our teachers are dedicated to providing interaction while individually nurturing each child.
In this classroom there is no “daily” schedule, we run on your baby’s time!!
