1. ROOM #1 – Infant Room is for ages birth to 12 months
Paragraph 1. Infant room is revolved around the care given, the routines created, safe environment, health and nurturing to the infant. (Mossler, 2011). Infant care requires individual are that meets the daily pattern of sleeping, eating, changing diaper, and awake times. Positive interactions and communication are factors that encourage development of attachments and are easily facilitated with a consistent routine and schedule. Infants awake time the teacher can provide development activities such as “tummy time on a carpeted area, this helps the infant work on skills such as rolling over, crawling and eventually walking. Paragraph 2. Reading is the second scheduled activity. The infants will be read to one hour a day. Reading aloud to the infants is a stimulation to the development of an infant. Reading aloud to infants has many benefits some are it teaches the baby about communication, gives infant information about the world around them, and finally it builds listening, memory and vocabulary skills. (Mossler, 2011). Hearing words help build a larger vocabulary of working in the infants’ brain. Infants that are frequently talked to and read to know more words by the age of 2. Reading to infants helps promote social and thinking skills. Paragraph 3. Leapfrog Animal Adventure Learning Table
LeapFrog Animal Adventure Learning Table will help support motor, social, and cognitive skills in ages 6-12 months of age. It also helps with growth and development in children this age. The Infant Room will help with the development of hearing, touching, smelling, tasting, and sound. Infants have the chance to receive attention and bonding that he/she may not receive at home.
