High-quality infant care allows you to run errands, go to school, or go back to work knowing your baby is in a safe facility that also nurtures their developmental skills. Infants want to explore their new world and express themselves. Babies who attend an infant care center with early learning education begin to communicate with their peers and adults early in their developmental stage.
They also learn how to share with others, become self-aware, and have fine and gross motor control of their bodies. Babies also need stability and routine, and having them attend infant care at Crème de la Crème of Port Potomac (Woodbridge) will give them full days of play, cuddles, and exploration while starting them on their road to independence.
Not only will your baby receive lots of attention in a nurturing environment by our trained and caring Crème de la Crème team members, but they’ll also start to develop their emotional, social, and cognitive skills with programs and benefits including:
Infants begin to communicate and express themselves by using sounds and gestures. As they grow, they learn words to communicate with adults and their peers. However, before infants can fully grasp words and verbalization, they may become frustrated trying to express their needs. At Crème de la Crème Port Potomac (Woodbridge), we teach your young child baby sign language so they can sign for desires and needs such as eat, drink, help, all done, and want more.
Babies flourish when they have routines and recognize familiar faces. Our teachers and infant care curriculum give your baby routine care with set play, nap, and mealtimes so they can enjoy feeling stable and cared for. These routines can help your baby sleep better and develop sound nutritional patterns.
At Crème de la CrèmePort Potomac (Woodbridge), Virginia, we keep our infant care classroom size low with eight infants and a 1-4 teacher-to-infant ratio. This allows our teachers plenty of time to play, cuddle, sing, and talk with your baby throughout the day. Because we can give your infant focused attention, it helps them feel safe and secure.
Our infant care areas have soft toys and play structures so your baby can crawl and explore the area. When the weather permits, our teachers can carry your infant outside to a dedicated area just for small children so they can get fresh air and sunshine.
We’ve designed our infant care curriculum for babies from 6 weeks to 6 months to include teaching them:
You want to know that your baby is in a safe and secure facility and we take safety seriously at Crème de la Crème of Port Potomac (Woodbridge). We have advanced security cameras located in the classrooms, play areas, and outside that we monitor closely. In addition, anyone entering our facility must use our signature biometric and access code process.
Babies need to crawl and explore and put objects in their mouths. We have a dedicated cleaning crew that cleans the infant area several times a day and does a three-step sanitizing process at the end of the day. We sanitize all toys and linens every day to eliminate germs. Our infant area is a shoeless zone to help further reduce dirt and germs.
