Infant Care (2months to 18 months)

"Adults can enhance, encourage and nurture children's development in a variety of ways by taking cues from the children and providing the appropriate "match" of materials and experiences to fit the children's observed needs, interests and behavior" (Wilson et al., 1995).

To facilitate the adaptation to a new environment, we accustomed our routines according to our infants' body schedule (eg: feeding, changing of diapers, napping and emotional needs) to cater to their different needs. With the adoption of a low adult to child ratio, we ensure that every child in Bright Kids are given the attention they need during their early childhood development.  

Linguistic Skills

Children who develop strong language and communication skills are likely ready to learn in primary school. Routine care is part of our curriculum where educarers will use the opportunity to interact verbally.

Cognitive Skills - Play and Activity 

Reading a book, dancing, playing, music and singing.

Social Skill

According to research, a dramatic increased in social gesture is observed for infants between 8 to 12 month (Reilly et al., 2006). With a group of passionate educarers, who constantly shower infants with tender-loving care, they are able to foster a stronger bond with others and build a secured attachment, allowing them to display confidence in exploring their environment. 

Physical Skills

Our play-time has allowed infants to stimulate their sense of touch and sight, encouraging the movement of hands and fingers (eg: grasping).
