Infants are stimulated by a variety of shapes and patterns. Because a newborn’s visual acuity is still developing, babies at this age are more apt to be interested in large, high-contrast (black and white) images Babies will be entertained through exercise, imitation, books, baby sign language. And tummy time, plus many other activities. Beansprout Academy understands that the first year of life is an essential time for your child’s development. We provide every infant with a safe, secure environment and a lot of warm adult interaction. This encourages infants to develop, physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally.
Because every infant has a unique routine for eating, sleeping, and playing, parents and caregivers establish a personalized plan that is continually updated to meet individual needs. Growth and developmental milestones are shared with parents and recorded on a daily basis. Rooms are filled with books, blocks, and toys to encourage discovery and awareness. Explorations of texture, color, pattern, size, shape, smell, sound, and taste are all encouraged. Lots of movement, songs, books, and puppets are integrated on a daily basis.
