Infant Childcare

6 weeks - 12/15 months

What your infant learns and experiences in the first year of life becomes a foundation that they will build on for the rest of their lives.

Daily Activities

Our infant classroom is an environment that exposes your child to new sights, sounds, tastes, textures, movements, and smells both indoors and outdoors.  Each day your child will engage in a variety of physical activities.  Our teachers respond to your baby’s cooing and babbling and converse as if the baby understands everything they are saying. Your infant’s schedule is important to us.  Our goal is to accommodate as many special considerations as possible so your child’s time away from home is as close to home as possible.

  • Indoor and outdoor play time
  • Exposure to sounds, tastes, textures, movements, and smells
  • We accommodate your considerations and schedules

Curriculum

In the first year of life infants like to explore objects with their mouths or by kicking, reaching, grasping, pulling and letting go.

Kids at this age often smile, laugh, coo and reach out to engage their parents and other caregivers. They love to listen and respond to language by imitating the sounds and rhythms that they hear.

At Busy Little Hands we read books, sing songs, imitate sounds, and encourage grasping to develop foundational skills that your baby will need in toddlerhood and beyond.

  • Age appropriate toys and activities
  • Reading and song time to encourage foundational skills

Communication

Trusting someone else with your child can be scary but being able to learn about your child’s day can set your mind at ease. Kangarootime is our parent communication app where you can see what teachers are charting about your child in real time like feedings, nap times and selfies! When you come to pick up your child you will also receive a report of all the day’s activities and notes about what happened. Our infant teachers also have a cell phone that you can text or call anytime to speak directly with the person holding your precious baby.

  • Direct access to teachers via cell phones

Our youngest daughter has been attending Busy Little Hands since September of 2018. She was welcomed with open arms and so were we. We had a hard transition from an in home provider to a center but it was the best decision we made. within a month of her attending BLH, she started talking more, listening better and overall her development has improved greatly. She has created a special bond with her teacher Miss Nyssa and we couldn't be happier with our choice to attend BLH. Jessica, Steve and their staff are truly amazing with our daughter even on her hard days. We are forever grateful for them, they have worked with us even when they didn't have to. Thank you to all who work with at BLH. You are shaping our children for the future!
