The class is designed to meet your baby’s needs as they grow drastically over the next year. We have a designated section where the cribs are located so that your baby can sleep peacefully. We also have an area that has swings to help soothe babies and bouncers to help with gross motor development. A large area is protected by a padded mat to allow the babies to play safely with their toys. A wide variety of toys are rotated daily to ensure all senses are being met. This also allows for toys to properly get disinfected between use. Our linens/bibs are cleaned daily and booties/socks are only allowed to be worn by teachers inside the classroom. This ensures that babies are protected from various outside germs.
What milestones should you expect over the next several months? By two months, your baby will begin to be calmed down when spoken to or picked up, looks at your face, is happy to see you, smiles when you talk to them, makes sounds other than crying, reacts to loud sounds, watches you move, looks at a toy for several seconds, holds head up at tummy time, moves both arms and legs, opens hands briefly.
At four months, your baby will begin to be able to smile on their own, chuckle, make “oooo” and “ahhh” sounds (cooing), make sounds back when you talk to them, turn heads toward the sound of your voice, open mouth when he/she is hungry, hold head steady without support, hold a toy in their hand, bring hands to mouth, and push up onto elbows/forearms during tummy time.
At six months, your baby will begin to know familiar people, look at self in a mirror, laugh, make squealing noises, pull things to their mouth, reach to grab objects they want, close lips when done eating, roll tummy to back, push up with straight arms during tummy time, and lean on hands to support while sitting.
At nine months, your baby will become shy or fearful around strangers, show a variety of facial expressions, look when name is called, react when you leave, smile or laugh when you play peek-a-boo, make a lot of different other sounds, lift arms to be picked up, look for objects when dropped out of sight, bang two things together, get to a sitting position by themselves, move objects from one hand to another, use fingers to “rake” food, and can sit without support.
We look forward to watching your baby grow for years and years to come!
