A baby’s eyes are 75% of their adult size, but its vision is around 20/400. By six months, a baby’s vision should reach 20/20.
A baby has around 10,000 taste buds, far more than adults. They are not just on the tongue but also on the sides, back, and roof of the mouth. Eventually these extra taste buds disappear.
If a person who was born 8 lbs. and 20 in. at birth continued growing at the same rate as he does the first year, by the time he reached 20, he’d be 25 ft. tall and weigh nearly 315 lbs.!
Making the transition with trust
Your baby is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. We honor your baby's individuality. We know that each baby needs to grow and develop at their own pace. Our goal in the Infant Room is to provide a safe, loving and stimulating environment that gives them the freedom and support to do just that. We strive to stimulate cognitive growth through varied language experiences. The social and emotional development of each infant is of primary importance.
Through the assignment of a primary caregiver, your infant will learn how to adapt socially and emotionally to the world around them. Caregivers will teach and facilitate sharing and caring through playing, holding, feeding, touching and changing. Physical development is enhanced by allowing babies the freedom to move safely around the room. The babies even have music class once a week!
Each baby follows his/her own (or parent-requested) schedule of eating, sleeping, and playing. Diapers are changed throughout the day as needed. The Center provides feeding dishes, spoons and bibs and parents bring food and bottles.Caregivers keep a daily journal of eating, sleeping, and daily activities for parents to check, and a teacher is available daily to talk with you about your child's day.
