Infants are born ready to learn and explore the world! The infant program at our Brightside Academy Arlington location is where your baby develops into a curious and active child. Purposeful play is integrated to every activity to ensure your infant begins their path to learning from the start.
Our infant program includes:
- Free diapers and wipes
- Free meals and formula
- Safe and developmentally enriching caregiving
- Activities that help infants acquire developmental skills
Inside Your Infant’s day
At the Brightside Academy Arlington location, a typical day for infants includes time for play, story time, meals, sleep, tummy time as well as individual and group activities in the morning and afternoon. Each day your infant gets to interaction with nurturing teachers while discovering things using all five senses, mimicking simple actions of the people around them, experimenting with toy instruments, exploring textures, colors, and learning a variety of words and sounds through playing with other infants. Your child will develop social skills and learns to enjoy and trust their surroundings.
Communication with Parents
At Brightside Academy consistent communication with our parents is of most importance. Parents are welcomed to provide useful information to the teacher in the morning. At the end of the day parents receive a daily report with information on your child’s day.
The daily report provides specific information on:
- Amount of food/formula they ate
- Amount of sleep they had
- Diaper changes
- Tummy time
- Learning activities your child participated in during the day
- Important reminders of items to bring or other information
At Brightside Academy, we make sure this first transition away from home is smooth and joyful for you and your baby. Every child is special and we take pride in providing the nurturing care your baby needs to develop and transition into our toddler classroom.
