Infant Center

IMG_3864Devonshire Infant Center accepts children as young as six weeks of age. Babies spend their day interacting with competent, well-trained, loving staff in a newly remodeled, spacious infant center. Teachers abide by parent instructions on sleeping, diapering and feeding, mirroring home routines. Food, diapers, bottles, clothing and sundries are provided by parents and each is labeled with the child’s name. Formula, breast milk and/or baby food is warmed in bottle warmers.  Parents enjoy an “open door” policy, allowing visits to the center at any time. This is particularly useful for nursing mothers who want the convenience of breast-feeding mid-day.

Music, dance and teacher/child interaction play a big role in the three infant classrooms.  The educarers in our Infant One Room, for babies six weeks of age through 12 months (roughly), focus on attachment, comfort and building body stability.    Teachers in the Infant Two Room, for little ones who are 12 – 18 months old,  help the children with balance, walking and other gross motor skills and begin Circle Time with songs, clapping and acknowledgement of all the children in attendance.  Teachers in the Toddler Room prepare little ones for preschool through the use of fine motor skill development and  pre-literacy exercises.

We know the anxiety of parents having to leave their precious child with unfamiliar people.  That’s why our staff spends extra time with parents, understanding their needs and wants.  They ensure parents receive photos of their child/children throughout the week, fill out detailed daily reports and make themselves available to answer questions and share stories.  Our goal is to minimize your anxiety through service to parents and outstanding care for the children.

This introduction of our services is no substitute for a visit to the center.  Feel free to tour, sit in on a class, talk to the staff and other parents.  Find out for yourself if this is the right place for you and your baby.  Our number is 818-700-2821.
