The Infant community is a special environment meant to replicate the home. The children will enjoy warmth and care while developing many life skills in a safe and loving environment. Hand-eye coordination, grasping skills, coordination of the body through movement and independence are skills your child can explore at his/her own pace.
Preparing for a new experience
There are some things that you can do at home to help your baby get ready for school, which will help to make the transition easier:
Play object permanence games with your child, i.e. hide and seek with people and objects. This is an important piece of understanding for a child in a group care setting for the first time. Children who understand that objects and people are not gone even when they are not visible have an easier adjustment to being away from home.
Practice observing your child. If your baby is interested in an activity that does not require your participation, sit back. Watch and wait to see what your baby will do next. Give your child the opportunity to develop the ability to concentrate and to play independently.
