Infant Child Care

The CDFC's infant early care and education is a child guided program for children ages 6 weeks to 18 months. Our experienced teachers have an extensive knowledge of child development.

To provide peace of mind for parents, one of our main educational goals in the infant room is to build a trusting relationship with the child and the family. The teacher, the parent, and the child work together to build a schedule that is tailored to the individual child's needs. When an infant feels secure that his/her environment will meet all essential needs, learning is enhanced and the child takes the lead in his/her exploration. Our teachers then become guides, and build upon your child's interests.

Daily activities are modified to the child's ability to allow every infant to participate. A variety of toys are accessible to engage your child, further their learning, and develop motor skills. Our teachers read books and sing songs to promote language development.

Learning the social skills needed to succeed later in life starts right from birth. Our teachers encourage the children to interact socially with the other infants in the room. The concepts of gentle touches, sharing toys, and emotional control are touched upon in daily activities. Parents receive daily information on how their child's day went, mood, napping, eating and other important information. Call for a tour, you won't be disappointed.
