At Inheritance our Infants and Toddlers (Little Lambs) are sure to be held, loved and encouraged to safely explore their own little worlds. They’ll get lots of warm cuddles and stimulating activities throughout their day while in our care. We do not allow children to use any type of equipment (high chairs, bouncy seats, etc) that cause them to be restrained for more than 20 minutes during a three hour period.
No one likes a wet diaper.
We check and change each child regularly throughout the day (every 2 hours). If the little one is a potty training toddler then their also given the opportunity to use the toilet. We begin to familiarize the children with the restroom at the age of 16 months in efforts to achieve potty training by two years old. We work with each parent to establish a schedule for bottles and feedings. All utensils are cleaned throughout the day.
Our goal is to accommodate each child’s individual schedule while creating a safe, nurturing environment.
Infants engage in educational creative play using large blocks and stacking, exploration using sensory objects, music and dance. We read books and stories, sing songs and tell Nursery Rhymes Development of Gross Motor Skills, children engage in games such as Tunnel Climbing, small parachute play, tummy time, floor play, gentle aerobics of rolling and stretching on the mats.
