First Discoveries is pleased to offer a developmental infant program that provides nurturing care for infants ages 6 weeks to 12 months. Much more than "daycare," our infant program embraces the philosophy of our child development program: every moment is an opportunity to learn and grow!
Enrollment in the infant room is on-going, on a space available basis. We do offer preregistration for expectant families.
Please call 813-831-8085 today to schedule a tour and reserve a space for your child.
Our developmental infant program offers:
* A small group size of just 8 infants so your baby receives individualized care throughout the day
* Tummy time, outdoor time, stories and songs so your baby is growing and learning everyday!
* Communication throughout the day (including pictures of your little one as well as updates on meals, naps and diapers) through our parent communication app so you have peace of mind knowing that baby is well cared for!
The first year of a child's life is a time of remarkable growth! Infants explore the world around them each day, and our developmental infant program will stimulate their curiosity and interest both in the classroom and during daily outdoor times. We understand that in infancy, learning occurs as children encounter problems and invent solutions.
Our program focuses on providing stimulating environments that help infants develop the ability to focus their attention, to persist in their efforts, and to communicate and understand language.
We know that an infant's relationship with family members is critical for healthy development, and we welcome parents as partners in their child's care.
We also understand that infants need to develop close, loving relationships with their teachers at school. These relationships help them feel safe, allowing them to explore their surroundings with confidence.
Our infant teachers are nurturing and attentive, understanding the critical importance of the development that occurs during a child's first year of life.
We enroll eight children in our developmental infant program. Each child reserves one space, Monday through Friday. Families are, of course, welcome to use the program on the just the days they require, but tuition is not adjusted for attending fewer than five days per week.
Tummy time builds healthy brains!
High quality infant care depends on teachers that are attuned to the individual needs of each child in their care. Our staff understand this and they work closely with family members to individualize each child's schedule, including meals, naps and play time.
