Responsive Caregiving Through Routines and Experiences

Altoona PA Daycare

Routines and positive, meaningful interactions build the foundation of our infant program.

We offer a carefully balanced schedule of activities to meet the individual needs of every infant. We’ll talk with you daily about your infant’s progress and accomplishments in all areas, such as language, physical growth, and sleep habits. The more families and caregivers communicate, the better we may meet your infant’s changing needs and provide structure to your infant’s day. The responsive care and teaching provided during your baby’s day is what enables your child to develop a secure attachment with our caregivers.

We strive to provide a smooth transition from your child’s time at Begin With Us to your time together at home. Contact us to learn how we may care for and nurture your baby.

Developmentally Appropriate Programs

The Begin With Us Infant Program will help your child reach important growth and developmental milestones. Some examples include:

Language and Literacy Development

An infant’s language development is strongly influenced by the language they hear spoken around them and to them. Our caregivers will support your infant’s language development by introducing new words and demonstrating how conversation works. Your infant will be exposed to language through one-on-one conversations, books read out loud, and music. Your baby will have plenty of opportunity to practice their developing communication skills with our loving caregivers.

Physical Development

Infants are in constant motion and all movement is an opportunity to learn and grow beginning with lifting their head, to rolling over, to crawling. As your infant reaches new physical milestones, such as standing, walking, and climbing our caregivers respond by providing more complicated toys and materials to explore safely.

Social and Emotional Development

Infants are born ready to learn through positive and meaningful interactions. As your infant grows, the relationships that your baby has developed with trusted adults and peers will help your baby show increasing self-awareness and independence.
