Developing Remarkable Potential in Infants

By January 23, 2019 No Comments

through exceptional nurturing and stimulating care.

What kind of impact does daily life have on your infant? Well, with ever-increasing advancements in technology, scientists are now able to study the brain better than they ever have before and the research and data strongly suggest that the first few years of life have a HUGE impact on a child’s future.

Consider this quote from the Harvard department of child development:

“Early experiences affect the development of brain architecture, which provides the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. Just as a weak foundation compromises the quality and strength of a house, adverse experiences early in life can impair brain architecture, with negative effects lasting into adulthood.”

At Ardent Preschool and Daycare we’re all about building a foundation that will last! That’s why we’ve gone to great lengths to develop an infant care program that actively seeks to stimulate the mind, nurture the heart, and assist in the development of important milestones. Our commitment to our parents can be found in our daily practices:

Schedules that are flexible and in tune to your baby’s needs:

  • Safe Sleep Policy (approved by a mom and Resident Pediatrician at Children’s Hospital)
  • Continual engagement with teachers throughout the day (our cribs are for sleeping only – if it’s not nap time, it’s interaction time!)
  • Rooms that are designed for age and development (separating newborns, crawlers and walkers)
  • Slow and Steady Curriculum that allows for age appropriate learning of sign language, colors, and shapes
