Here we will look at all the benefits infant child care has to offer both you and your child between the ages of 6 weeks to 24 months old. Studies have shown that child care enhances development in children.
Make Time For Yourself
Most parents who have children are under a lot of stress and pressure to juggle work, family and everyday life. Infant child care offers you reduced stress and time back by having your children cared for at a high-quality child care, we know it’s important that your child is in a safe, stimulating and loving environment.

Benefits of Child Care
Young children who attend child care are shown to have better academic development and cognitive scores in their teens. This has a direct correlation between high quality child care as an infant and academic progress in teenage years.
Allowing your child to go to infant child care improves their social interactions and language skills, thus improving your child’s emotional awareness. Your child will get to make new friends and play with them in a safe, supervised and secure environment. Social Interaction is important as children learn, play and share experiences with others at an age while they are still developing.
Most children only learn about adults from their direct family, this can cause a child to have very limited knowledge when it comes to interacting with adults. Child care allows children to interact with adults in a safe environment. This environment is beneficial to a child as he/she can learn about authority, as well as positive and negative interactions through adult encouragement and discouragement.
Children slowly learn to get into a routine through scheduled activities. Even though they might not be aware of it, infant child care is well structured. What might just seem like story time or fun tasks to children is essential to a child’s intellectual development by means of a structured environment.
Self-Confidence and Responsibility
The move from home to child care can overwhelming for some children. However, it is a milestone to be overcome as this prepares them for challenges in the future and adapting to new situations helps foster their self-confidence and self-esteem. This also improves their sense of self-efficiency and responsibility.
Develop Motor Skills
Infant child care offers the development of a child’s motor skills through playing and activities such as coloring. Fine motor skills are crucial to a child’s transition from child care to preschool.
