Infant Care - Nicholasville, KY

Our infant program focuses on providing a safe and nurturing environment where you can feel confident in your child’s care. We keep low child to teacher ratios to offer your child individualized attention, a calm and soothing environment, and responsive caregiving through routines and experiences. Routines offer the opportunity to build relationships and promote trust. During routine moments, such as diapering, feeding and soothing, our qualified staff will use the opportunities to develop curiosity, security, and language. When children form a secure attachment, they will begin to explore their environment. Through daily experiences, our staff will engage your child through playing with toys, imitating and pretending, and reading stories. Teachers work independently with children, helping them to master gross motor skills such as rolling over, crawling, and walking. Teachers also work on labeling objects and people to help expand each child’s language.
