At the James and Virginia Kids Unlimited, your 18-month-old child’s safety and healthy development is our top priority as with all ages attending our, school. The room is spacious, bright and cheerfully decorated. Our infants never sleep and play in the same space; play area is separated from the sleeping area. Each classroom includes a fridge for storing baby’s milk and foods. We strongly believe good hygiene practices are vital to the health of our infants. Cribs and toys are sterilized daily. Disposable covering placed over the changing table before laying the infant on the surface. The changing table is always disinfected with a child-safe sanitizer solution after each diaper change. Our caregivers are dressed in clean, blue scrubs.
At this age the child begins to follow a less personalized schedule but the beginning the school schedule of eating and napping as a group. Each day the parents are provided with a written synopsis of the child’s day – this includes a summary of the feedings, diaper changes, and naps that the child took that day. Of course, if there is any other information you would want us to capture, please let us know. We also document all milestones met by your child.
We engage and stimulate the child. The care giver will begin to promote conversation as speech is beginning also provided are various toys and early picture books to introduce the names of things as well as counting. Pull toys to enhance walking skills. We interact with, read to, and play with your child providing more simulation than the Hatchling room, to stimulate his or her growth in this most critical period of formation—when he or she is continuing to learn how to observe, experiment. Just like you would in your own home, we sit on floor with your little one to play. Providing plenty of attention, positive reinforcement and love. We speak to your child, tell stories, and read picture books; we build association between sounds, words and movements through interaction and play.
We work hard to provide a safe, stimulating, and nurturing environment that will foster your baby’s physical and emotional development. We appreciate the uniqueness of every child – and we care for the needs of every child as an individual. We appreciate you trusting us with your infant's care and education, and we're committed to making our home away from home easy and natural for you and your child.
Infant caregivers are certified in CPR and First Aid.
