Providing childcare for babies is different than caring for older children. Babies have special ways of communicating, specific nutritional needs, and individual routines. Our educators know and understand infants’ specific needs and ways of communicating so they can meet and provide each child’s individuality using a holistic approach by tuning into babies’ needs and let them eat and sleep on their own timetable.
Educators build trust by by spending time one-on-one with each child and responding quickly to their needs. When children have a secure attachment, they feel safer and spend more time exploring their world.
Some of the fun that the babies will have through playing games like peek-a-boo, water play, sand play, art experiences, exploring their environments both indoors and outdoors.
Benowa’s outdoor environment is safe and interesting for babies to explore as they can see, feel and do in the play space provided for them.
Infants are always processing and putting together the world around them. Providing natural, loose parts resources will teach them cause and effect and develop their creativity and imagination.
