At The Apple Tree Learning Centers our goal is to keep infants safe and help them grow. Safety is a big concern when it comes to infants. There is danger everywhere, whether it is at your house or even in your arms.
Growing is also the key for their success. Infants need to be fed at their scheduled times and given plenty of love.
Activities are integrated across all domains of infant development—physical, emotional, social, and cognitive—and develop a wide variety of skills, including:
- Language acquisition
- Sense of self
- Sensory awareness
- Motor skills
- Visual tracking
- Self-help skills and much more!
Infant care teachers focus their time making sure the babies work on their physical development such as crawling or rolling around. They also do arts and crafts while working on their motor skills. Social and emotional needs are met by giving them hugs and words of affirmation.
