Our Infant Room
Infant care is where it all begins. Not only with their development and their understanding of the world around them, but with their spirituality as well. They absorb information like a sponge, which is why our Christian childcare center has safe and nurturing environments where they are safe to learn about themselves. They learn how to sit up without support, how to crawl, and how to talk, even if it is just babbling! In addition to our nurturing environment, we also help them through their mental and physical development. Your child’s first experiences are vital to their future development, which is why it is important for them to be in a place where they can thrive.

Making Their First Experiences Count
During their first year, your infant is learning about the world around them for the first time, which is why it is vital for them to experience positive experiences that make them feel safe and loved. You as the parent and us as the teachers are the people that your child will be bonding with the most. The loving and caring attention that your child receives affects their brain in ways that help them feel confident and secure, make sense of new information, and grow healthy bodies. You want your child to be a loving environment because it helps your infant learn how to relate to other people and also feel safe. At Lighthouse Explorers, you can feel confident knowing that your infant is in caring, kind, Christian hands.
What They’re Learning
While it may seem like there is not a lot going on in our infant room, there is actually a lot of learning happening! Your child’s emerging growth and development includes more than just learning about and overcoming physical challenges — they are overcoming personality, behavior, thinking, and speech challenges that are a big part of their success in the next stages of their lives. As your child continues to grow, they will begin bringing hands and other objects to their mouths, as it is one of the ways that they make sense of the world around them. They follow light, faces, and objects, which is why we make our environment friendly, welcoming, safe, and Godly. Your child is absorbing everything!
During the first year of their life, infants are learning things like focusing their vision, exploring and learning about the world around them, and processing things like memory, language, thinking, and reasoning. While it may seem like they just stare, babble, sleep, and make messes in their diapers, they truly are making sense of their surroundings. They are developing close bonds with the ones around them, so our infant room is the exact spot where they should be! As a Christian childcare, one of our values is to help your infant start building their biblical foundations.
How Do We Help Increase Your Child’s Developmental and Emotional Security?
There are a multitude of ways that your child continues to grow, thrive, and develop under our care. Some of those ways include naming common objects that your child is interested in, showing them picture books, reading to them, giving them toys that they can play with. We hold and comfort your child when they are unhappy, sing to your infant, and provide an established routine of naps and snacking time. As your infant gets older, our childcare rooms will cater to their growing developments and milestones. Our values as a Christian childcare is to increase your child’s understanding of the world around them and help them develop their spirituality early on.
