The BKA infant care caters to children from 3 months to approximately 18 months of age. In our infant class we provide a warm and nurturing environment with all areas equipped to provide children the opportunity to grow and develop at their own pace. The class follows personalised plans catering to each child’s individual needs whilst encouraging them to form a regular routine that works in conjunction with their family and the class. Class rooms are airy and bright having access to outside space, role-play areas and equipment to stimulate and support growth and development. The class works in partnership with parents who are allowed to bring their own food, formula, breast milk which will be safely stored in hygienic clearly marked containers specific to their child. When the child and family are ready the teachers will support the transition to snacks and the warm balanced lunch provided by the school.
Our Infant classes have designated monitored sleeping areas which allow children to rest undisturbed and encourage them to develop positive sleep patterns.
We provide personalised activities which are planned to stimulate each child’s development and encourage confidence and independence. Teachers work in partnership with parents on areas for development such as feeding, sleeping, walking etc. Although snacks and lunch are provided by the BKA, parents are asked to provide their own specific formula powder and baby mash/puree. If desired parents can bring breast milk which will be hygienically stored for their child. All items provided by the parents are to be clearly marked with their child’s name.
Children in the infant class follow a routine that works in conjunction with parent’s needs, providing day care that promotes harmony and encourages the children to flourish. The schedule is tailored more around the individual child’s needs but also helps each child to start developing a routine thus preparing them for the Toddler class.
