Infant Care from 6 weeks to 12 months

infant day care, 6 weeks +Avalon Academy’s infant program is open to infants who are six weeks of age.

We offer three classrooms for our students aged 6 weeks-12 months. Younger infants occupy the Little Angels and Ladybugs classrooms, and older infants the Pooh Bears class. Infants transition between the levels based on age, readiness, and availability of space.

Our highly trained and experienced infant care teachers provide a warm, loving, and safe environment. Daily, your baby is stimulated with age-appropriate cognitive, emotional, and motor control techniques and toys. The Pooh Bear class builds on the skills attained in our Little Angels class by introducing activities that develop gross motor skills, problem-solving, cooperation, and independence.

The Avalon Academy infant program promotes the following:

  • A tailored, structured infant care plan established between you and your child’s teacher
  • Gross motor skill development through movement and stimulation
  • Fine motor skills development using soft play, stacking, and essential manipulation toys
  • One-on-one cuddle and relaxation time

At the end of each school day, you’ll receive a report card listing your infant’s activities, eating and toilet patterns, and general information on your baby’s emotional and physical well-being.
