Infants develop so fast, and in a matter of months, they are already on their feet. Every interaction is recorded and forms a foundation for your child’s life. They might be born tabula rasa, but that doesn’t mean that they are slow learners. They will not tell you using words that they are uncomfortable, but they will somehow let you know.
Infancy development is a necessary process, and though there are many areas of concern, the right infant daycare can cater to your infant’s developmental needs.
In most cases, parents are afraid to admit that they are in over their heads when it comes to giving their infants the necessary care. You will learn in the next few minutes how you (parent) can partner with us (caregivers) to chatter a course for your baby.
But first, let’s get some definitions out of the way.

If you were wondering who a neonate is, the correct neonate definition refers to a child who is not older than one month. A newborn child can be referred to as a neonate.
Many factors affect the developmental process like genes, the child’s environment and your baby’s learning capability.
Monitoring your child’s developmental progress will help ensure that your baby hits the developmental “milestones”. These milestones are skills that are acquired by babies around the same time, but the time is not that exact. They are more or less guidelines that can help during the developmental process.
These milestones will help to know if your child is “on track”. They help to check if there any hiccups and treat them early. You can reduce the impact of such hiccups in your child’s later years.
The environment is vital in shaping your baby. Whenever you visit a program, you need to know if it’s supportive and safe for your baby. Here are some of the things you ought to look for:
We, as caregivers have guidelines that we follow to aid in your baby’s learning. The programs are carefully formulated to help cater to your child’s specific needs. The plans are based on your child’s developmental stage and age.
