INFANTS DEVELOPMENTAL MILESTONES
Our infant program guides your baby’s early experiences toward a lifelong love of learning.
Your baby’s physical development is a thing of beauty and a source of pride. From sitting to crawling, walking to talking, smiling to laughing, each achievement is a developmental milestone. Learn what to expect next in your baby’s physical and intellectual development.
Skills such as taking the first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye-bye” are called developmental milestones.
Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (like crawling, walking, or jumping).
In the first year, babies learn to focus their vision, reach out, explore, and learn about the things that are around them. Cognitive, or brain development means the learning process of memory, language, thinking, and reasoning.
Learning a language is more than making sounds (“babble”), or saying “ma-ma” and “da-da”. Listening, understanding, and knowing the names of people and things are all a part of language development.
During their first year, babies start to develop skills they will use for the rest of their lives. The normal growth of babies can be broken down into the following areas:
• Gross motor – controlling the head, sitting, crawling, maybe even starting to walk
• Fine motor – holding a spoon, picking up a piece of cereal between thumb and finger
• Sensory – seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling
• Language – starting to make sounds, learning some words, understanding what people say
• Social – the ability to play with family members and other children
Babies do not develop at the same rate. There is a wide range of what is considered “normal.” Your baby may be ahead in some areas and slightly behind in others.

Our daughter Renee started sowing seeds back in September when she was just 3 months old. We are very thankful for the love and affection that she has received from miss Gloria, and the others in the school. I highly recommend this facility to all the parents looking for a top-notch daycare/school for their kids.
