Loving care in dedicated ‘home from home’ sleep and play rooms
Babies discover the world in a unique way…
It’s important at this age to let each child eat, sleep, or play according to his or her own natural timetable.
Our Little Angels are provided with a wide variety of sensory activities to stimulate them and encourage their curiosity and exploratory impulses.
We have daily reports that give you information about nappy changes, food, activities they have done and any other information required.
Little Angels Room is an environment that is specially prepared for babies before they can walk. Our teachers are attentive to the individual needs of each infant and are highly trained in observation skills and child development.
Our spacious room have an excellent range of play equipment to encourage your baby’s individual stage of development. We also have many extra features for added comfort and safety.
Equipment has been carefully selected, along with individually planned daily activities to promote the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of each baby.
We also have a dedicated sleep room that is equipped with baby cots for those times your little one needs a nap.
We believe that children learn best through observation, experience, and play. These methods allow the child’s brain to make the necessary connections for learning cognitive skills, social/emotional skills, gross motor skills and fine motor skills.
In our Little Angels room our goal is to foster a loving, nurturing, and supportive environment, to engage in many stimulating activities that will support this method of learning, while having lots of fun!
Gross Motor skill building Activities:
Things that build up large muscle groups such as tummy time, rolling, sitting, standing, walking, reaching, throwing, kicking, stretching, etc.
Fine Motor skill building Activities:
Things that build up fine motor muscle groups such as manipulating small toys and objects like strings or tags on toys, finger painting, turning pages of board books, and grasping small objects.
Cognitive skill building Activities:
Building cognitive skills is a way of helping infants and children begin to understand the world around them, which they can do through experience. Using cause and effect toys, that allow a child to understand reactions and repeating actions to get desired outcome and building on that understanding, to interact with the world around them in a more aware state. Cause and effect toys would include things with buttons that cause reactions, pop-up toys, musical toys, balls, cars, etc.
Literacy and Language skill building Activities:
Every day, we make a conscious effort to talk to our babies, so they can hear verbal language constantly spoken to them. We read age-appropriate books like rhyming books, phonetic books, song books, and sound books, we sing songs to the children and we encourage them to watch our hand movements and mimic them back -as they get older.
Social and Emotional skill building Activities:
Bonding with every new infant that comes into our classroom is a very important part of what we do. Building the social and emotional skills to trust and bond with caregivers and peers is important at a young age and can make the rest of their time in child care much more enjoyable and successful.
