We understand that for many of you this is your first experience leaving your baby. Our goal at Growing Tree is to make your baby feel safe, secure, and nurtured while in our care. It is a joy for us to have the opportunity to take care of the most important person in your life. At Growing Tree, our job is to be available and responsive to your families needs each and every day.
Our infants are divided into two groups of 8 infants:
Infants 6 weeks to 10 months old
Mobile infants 10 to 18 months old
We recognize that each infant is unique and an individual. Our Seeds depend on us to be fed when they are hungry, changed when they are wet, allowed to sleep when they are tired, comforted when upset, be provided interesting things to explore, held and loved. When we meet their needs consistently, promptly, and lovingly, we are helping your Seed to learn to trust themselves and their world.
Growth and Development:
Our Seed Room is filled with colorful age appropriate toys that encourage your infant to explore and develop. Singing, books, sign language, outdoor play, and sensory play are just some of the activities incorporated throughout the day for your infant's development. We limit the use of swings, bouncers, and saucers as we feel that the floor is the best place for your infant to explore and grow.
