Consistent infant care is a necessity for many families. While parents are at work, they need a nurturing, stable, and trustworthy environment where they can leave their child. Parents want peace of mind knowing their child is not only being cared for, but is being provided with an enriching experience to help their physical, mental, and emotional development. Children need an environment that encourages learning and exploration from an early age. Because infants learn using all of their senses, it is important to provide babies with opportunities throughout the day to explore the world around them in a safe environment.
The early years form the foundation for literacy development. It is imperative for babies to be exposed to language, stories, and phonics from an early age. These early experiences and exposure can help develop a love for learning and reading. Consistent interaction with adults and their own peers also helps infants to develop the important social and emotional skills they’ll need as they grow.
When your child is enrolled in private infant care at our Crème de la Crème facility, the benefits include:
An infant’s confidence and socialization skills begin developing at a very early age. Crème de la Crème encourages positive social interaction for infants through singing, playing, and story time. By creating opportunities for infants to develop relationships, friendships, and connections with others, we introduce new experiences and opportunities for learning. Infants also build relationships with caregivers and other adults. This can help reduce anxiety for children in case they are ever left in the care of other family members or a sitter.
We value our students’ safety and want parents to have confidence in our care. We have video recorders in all of our classrooms and common areas to ensure safety and monitoring for all our students. There are also non-recording cameras in the bathrooms to further ensure safety.
The state ratio for caregivers to infants is 1-to-5. Here at Crème de la Crème, our ratio is 1-to-4. This enables our caregivers to provide immediate and individualized care to our infants. Infants benefit from quality and unrushed interaction with adults. Our unique environment allows us to keep the ratio down and provide your infant with the best care possible.
Part of healthy development for infants is the necessity for sensory stimulation. Using art, music, and physical play, our students experience a multitude of activities to help encourage exploration and learning.
We are conveniently located on Natorp Boulevard, right next to the Hilton Garden Inn. A beloved perk for many families is that we are only two doors down from Graeter’s Ice Cream, which makes it a great option for a quick treat for the kids. Because we are centrally located, we are a perfect option for families in the greater Cincinnati area.
Our infant program specializes in creating a nurturing environment where all children are free to grow and develop at their own pace. We focus on whole-child care that introduces babies to healthy social and emotional interactions while focusing on language acquisition. We provide opportunities for infants to develop their motor control and body awareness through fun and playful activities designed with their needs in mind. Our infant care program includes:
We provide meals for children on table food and milk for those over the age of one.
Our downloadable parent connectivity app allows us to keep you updated on your infant’s day. We let you know about diaper changes, eating times, amounts, and even nap times. Our staff can even send you photos.
We provide all the essentials your infant will need while with us. This alleviates the stress of having to pack extras. Our all-inclusive care provides diapers, diaper wipes, and diaper creams. We have clean crib sheets, washcloths, linens, and sleep sacks to ensure your infant is comfortable.
Our play area at Crème de la Crème is safe and designed for smaller students to explore and play in. The nurturing environment provides a safe space for their bodies and minds to grow and develop while exploring their surroundings. Infants are continually supervised by our team of professionals in our meticulously clean rooms. Our play area and toys are soft enough for tiny hands, but still allow for exploration.
Children thrive when they have a consistent schedule and environment. When infants have a place they are familiar with, they develop a sense of stability and security.
We have a cleaning crew on site dedicated to ensuring our facilities and play areas are sanitized and safe for little fingers. We have a shoe-free environment to further keep crawling spaces germ-free. Our crew uses a specialized three-step cleaning process to help minimize the amount of germs and bacteria little hands are exposed to and keep toys and materials clean.
