Early Child Development for Infant & Toddler Enrichment
Southern Hills Infant and Toddler Enrichment Program provides a safe environment for children to explore. Throughout their day, we nurture and stimulate their growth. We provide each child with opportunities to learn through play.
We offer infant and toddler enrichment services at a Sioux Falls location with affordable rates. Our program is open to children ages four weeks to two years of age. Our care is available full-time Monday through Friday from 7 am to 6 pm.
Our care is individualized based on each child's needs. We are sure to give each child what they need based on their temperament, interests and learning style. During this early stage, we want to give your children the learning environment they deserve for growing.
We want to enrich your baby’s learning experience that encourages them to develop with others their age. With infants, we are sure to give each baby an appropriate amount of tummy time. We understand the importance of movement activities that help enrich your infant’s growing.
Young children will learn important problem-solving skills with our program. With our infant enrichment program, we encourage play! We help children to develop motor skills by playing with others. Our activities are geared towards infants and toddlers to grow.
The infants and toddlers in our program are all under the age of two. Activities in each age group are focused on brain development. The program curriculum incorporates the following techniques to enhance growth:
- Baby Sign Language
- Story Time
- Sensory Experiences
- Dramatic Play
- Intensive Staff Interaction
- 'Angel Care' Movement Monitors for infants
We are passionate about baby sign language. Teaching a child to sign helps develop their communication skills at a young age. If a child can’t communicate properly, they get frustrated. Teaching babies sign language will help to decrease tantrums.
We want children under the age of two to communicate when they’re upset, and it’s through signing that we encourage growth. Curious to know more? Click here to learn about the importance of baby sign language.
