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.

Each child has a personal crib, providing a sense of familiarity and comfort. Infants are encouraged to reach, grasp, kick, hold, pull, crawl, and stand. We also provide many cognitive experiences for your infant. Caregivers model social language skills such as “please,” “thank you,” and “good job” so infants become familiar with language and sound. Whatever activities engage a child, caregivers promote with positive reinforcement. They expand on each experience at school using rich vocabulary, strong connections, and consistent care.

Beansprout Academy will provide extensive visual language development for our infants and small toddlers through baby sign language certified by the ASL (American Sign Language). Baby sign language gives a typically developing child a way to communicate several months earlier than those who only use vocal communication. This might help ease frustration between ages 8 months and 2 years — when children begin to know what they want, need and feel but don’t necessarily have the verbal skills to express themselves.

Our infant classrooms provide personal, warm and loving care in a colorful, stimulating, clean, and healthy environment. The small child to teacher ratio in these classes allow for plenty of one-to-one interaction. We will be following a simple lesson plan to include stimulation and learning throughout your infant’s day!
