Infant care is often necessary for families with two working parents, but it also offers a wealth of benefits for babies. A quality infant care program can boost a child’s communication and language development by offering an ideal setting for them to learn how to speak and express emotions.
Infant care programs also offer a safe environment where trained professionals will give babies the care and attention they need while their parents are working. At the same time, infant care programs offer families stability by maintaining regular hours and reliable facilities that give them peace of mind.
You can expect a range of benefits for your child when you enroll them in a private infant care program, including:
Here at Crème de la Crème of Maple Grove, we understand how important personalized attention is for your baby’s safety and learning. Our class structures optimize the personalized care each infant in our program receives. Our infant care program welcomes babies from 6 weeks to 12 months old, and we organize our classes in two sections: 6 weeks to 7 months old and 7 months to 12 months old. With a maximum class size of eight, you can rest assured your child will receive care and education while with babies in similar developmental stages.
A quality infant care program creates an engaging curriculum to encourage babies to discover the world around them in their own unique way. Our infant program fosters a nurturing environment that introduces infants to healthy social and emotional interaction. At the same time, our innovative curriculum develops lifelong skills like motor control, body awareness, and language acquisition.
It’s never too early for a child to start learning. Crème de la Crème’s curriculum gets even our youngest students experimenting to discover how things work. Our infant program lays the foundation for babies to think actively and prepares them to keep learning in a preschool program, a public or private kindergarten, and beyond.
All infant play areas at Crème de la Crème are designed as nurturing settings for our young learners to prepare their brains and bodies for future learning. That means shoe-free infant classrooms supervised continually by a professional team. An on-site cleaning crew lets teachers keep their focus on the babies, and we use a three-step sanitizing process on changing tables and throughout our classrooms. We also wash crib sheets every day.
