Infants because of different sleeping and eating patterns are on their own individual schedule that
the parent feels is appropriate for their infant. The first most importance is the infants basic needs
being met feeding, sleeping, diaper changes. Cuddling and playing with the child and giving as
much attention and TLC is also important to our infant program. We realize that all infants develop
at different stages so therefore songs and finger plays, sensory stimulation, eye hand coordination
are all important to the brain development. Parent and staff communication is vital to a lasting and
positive experience at Time For Me.
