Infant Program

Infant Program

Young Phoenix Academy provides a highly specialised Infant Program for ages sic weeks to two years that is founded on love and care, positive interactions, and intentional engagement. We understand how difficult it can be to leave your little one, which is why we provide your baby with everything they need while you’re away. Our team of passionate care givers treat each child as if it’s their own, because at Young Phoenix Academy, we’re an extension of your family!

Our specialised Infant Program supports children’s Belonging, Being and Becoming through:

  • Emotional Bonding: Building positive relationships from the very beginning through rocking, cuddling, cooing, and talking to establish a sense of belonging, comfort and security.
  • Rhyme Time: Developing early literacy skills, coordination, and a positive baseline mood through singing, dancing, and music.
  • Story Telling: Establishing a love of reading and learning through stories that help them to understand their new world and enhance their memory, listening, and awareness.
  • Attentive Talking: Beginning the important process of developing language through verbal communication, gestures, expressions, sounds, and words in tune to your child’s needs and interests to encourage active responses.
  • Intentional Engagement: Actively engaging with children as they learn to encourage them to build their independence, knowledge, skills and strengths to build a sense of belonging, being, and becoming.
  • Positive Play: Providing children with open-ended learning opportunities focused on Young Phoenix’s Aspire Curriculum to meet infant’s developmental needs and interests. Key areas include cognitive development, hand eye coordination, motor development, and visual tracking.
