Every day we learn more about the incredible capacities of infants. Babies react to noise, changes in lighting, and new people—from the very beginning proof that they are aware of sights, sounds, and other people in their lives. Although your baby cannot tell you in words that she is hungry or needs a diaper change, she expresses her feelings and needs through the sounds she makes, her facial expressions, and movements. Caring for infants on a day-to-day basis presents special challenges and opportunities to promote children’s learning. Our staff ensures children’s safety and comfort while also fostering their physical, sensory, social, emotional, and intellectual development. Good care-giving results in more and stronger connections in the infant’s brain—connections that last a lifetime. And by connecting with warm, caring adults at the start of life, babies also begin developing the ability to connect with others throughout life.
