A baby’s needs are predictable: food, sleep, play and love. Knowing what the baby wants at what time and how much of it requires teachers to work closely with families. Each baby is unique and has his or her individual set of biological schedule. Your baby’s well being is our top priority. While babies are encouraged to develop at their own pace, our teachers help to keep a watch for the crucial developmental milestones. The activities below are carried out accordingly the baby’s own set of routines.
The teachers enthusiastically demonstrate the fun of creating varied sounds from different instruments, then encourage the child to explore making their own music through the notion of action and effect.
The floor time is for infants to develop their gross motor skills such as raising head and chest when lying on stomach, rolling over, crawling, sitting, walking and even dancing! All these will be done with teachers readily at their side for support and assurance.
Infants are guided by the teachers to grasp, touch and feel the different textures, shapes and sizes of objects.
Under careful supervision of the teachers, outdoor play in our garden on level 1 continues to enrich the toddlers’ sensory with nature.
Infant & Toddler (2 months to 18 months)
Our programme is balanced and holistic. We provide infants and toddlers with a wide array of learning through play across all domains and using all their senses. Our programme delivery strikes a good balance between structured and unstructured time to develop children’s love for learning and exploration.
In Children’s Cove, we constantly look into areas where we can better help babies brave their first step in acquiring new skills. From the scientific studies, we conclude that the infants’ growing up environment has an important impact on their development. Therefore Children’s Cove is adamant about providing a secure, supporting and reassuring environment where the child can learn to form positive and trusting relationships with their caregivers both in school and at home.
Every positive reassurance that the infants and toddlers receive will help in shaping their characters. The effects of positive character traits can reach far out into the toddler’s readiness to acquire early literacy skills and math. The toddler’s ability to self regulate their emotions can help them focus better on the task at hand and build new level of understanding.
