infant daycare in Jacksonville

If you are looking for infant day care in the Jacksonville area, Growing Room provides caring and loving infant care at both our San Pablo and Bartram locations.

Infants are our youngest learners. At birth, babies begin to learn to trust. This builds a foundation for them to learn other important skills. Infants grasp these concepts through the tone of voice and gentle touch a caregiver uses. At Growing Room, we offer individualized infant day care through our Primary Caregiver Program. Each baby has a primary caregiver who is responsible for consistently providing care and working with infants and parents as they progress through infancy. This caregiver will also provide activities appropriate for the infant’s development.

We use the “Baby Doll Circle Time” curriculum in all of our infant day care classrooms. These program helps infants grow and develop throughout the first year of life. It is our goal to provide experiences to assist children in creating a picture of who they are, what they can do, and what they think and feel. We want to show them that they are important, unique and competent.

In addition to the planning the caregivers do for our infants, we also ask that they work together with parents to build a partnership. This partnership can be developed through personal care plans, daily conversations about activities and foods baby enjoys, a sense of home being brought into the classroom (family pictures, favorite blankets, tapes of parents’ voices, etc.), and parents visiting and spending time in the classroom. This partnership along with consistent, individualized care is key to infancy development.
