Nurturing, High Quality Infant & Toddler Care
Friendship Corner Daycare is dedicated to the children and parents we serve each day. Our goal is to provide the best care for your child in the safest and healthiest surroundings possible. Because you entrust us with the care of your infants and toddlers, we continually take extra steps to ensure their well being.
This extra effort by our caregivers and teachers is a sign of our commitment to provide the best care for your child. The developmental stages that each child grows through will be enhanced each day with many educational activities.
Infants & Toddlers Are Active Participants In Their Development
We at Friendship Corner Childcare in Bartlett perceive how a baby’s understanding of the world develops. We believe that infants & toddlers are active participants in their own developmental stages.
Our professional caregivers and teachers provide physical and emotional security for each child and help each child to know, accept and take pride in herself or himself and to develop a sense of independence.
Your child will feel accepted in the group, learn to communicate and get along with others, and learn about feelings of empathy and to have mutual respect among children and adults.
Our caregivers provide a supportive environment in which children can begin to learn and practice appropriate and acceptable behaviors as individuals and as a group.
Friendship Corner Childcare Encourages Exploration!
The professional caregivers at Friendship Corner Childcare aid in the development of infants and toddlers in a well rounded, structured setting.
- To learn to talk, your child needs to be talked to.
- To learn about love and security, a child needs to be cuddled and cared for gently.
- To learn about the world, a child needs to see, hear, smell and touch.
Your infant and toddler always needs to be loved. Routines help your child adjust to this new world. The environment within the classrooms are conducive to the development of Psychosocial, Cognitive, Language, Gross-Motor, Fine-Motor and Prosocial areas. To do this, we focus on the following ideal; Young children learn through the leisurely handling of age appropriate objects.
It is important to have toys and materials that can be used in a variety of ways, and to allow each child time to be uninterruptedly self-sufficient. We speak to the children and offer suitably sturdy books with colorful pictures.
We promote active play for both inside and outside times. Children need to make many choices each day, and our caregivers and teachers allow them to choose among many appropriate learning materials.
Perhaps the most crucial part of the environment for infants & toddlers is continuous high quality care generously given by a small group of primary people – the parents are first, followed by our staff of Educated, Qualified, Gentle and Loving teachers and caregivers.
Diapers & Wipes For Our Infant Program
We accept only the use of disposable diapers and wipes in this facility. Modern disposable diapers have been shown to help prevent leakage of urine and stool, and minimize contamination to other children, environmental surfaces and objects in the child care setting.
Disposable diapers and wipes are more sanitary to handle when soiled. Rubber or plastic gloves are always used by caregivers when following the required Diaper Changing Procedure. Diapers and Wipes are to be supplied by the parents in the recommended size and style for their child. These will be labeled with the child’s name and used only for the child.
