The caregiver is responsible in taking care of all infants’ needs and requirements. As infants are totally dependent on others they build a trusting relationship with the caregiver at the centre. While they interact more with their caregiver they experience physical and emotional security with that special person. Their individual needs are immediately taken care of as they are very vulnerable and cannot cope up with discomfort.
- Routines from home are followed.
- 0-1 year olds have a daily communication book where all their daily routines and highlights of the day are recorded. At the end of the day parents can discuss about how they have been at home and if anything needs to be followed further.
- They have lots of nurturing and caring which provides opportunities for playful interactions. They have experiences of different play spaces like smooth and hard surfaces, indoor and outdoor experiences.
- They have a variety of sensory experiences like different sounds which allow them to crawl, move and touch things.
- They are encouraged to try new things and explore the experiences they are interested in more deeply. We provide more opportunities for infants and toddlers to become confident communicators and explorers.
- We respect each infant’s individual preferences relating to caregiver practices, for example, going to bed or feeding.
- Individual programmes are set according to each infant, IDPs are done to support infant’s needs.
