Infant Care

We understand that placing trust in others to care for your baby is an anxious time and also a big decision.

Our Family Day Care Educators are ideally suited to meet the individualised needs and routines of infants. With only four children in care, they invest quality time in getting to know your baby.

There might be a particular way you put your baby to sleep at home – a familiar song or technique used to help them settle. Our Family Day Care Educator will take your routine and mirror this, to the greatest extent possible, in their service.

Our Educators share detailed communication with parents about their child’s specific feeding, sleeping and nappy change information, along with general information about their baby’s day in care.

They partner closely with families on starting solids and introducing new food groups.

Developmentally, this is an important age in terms of:

  • Mobility (crawling, standing and maybe even walking) and ‘independence’
  • Expressive language
  • Back and forth interactions (e.g. talking to baby when baby babbles) and
  • Forming strong connections and relationships.

With only four children in care, our Family Day Care Educators get to know each child well and will foster a baby’s development through a program including singing songs, sharing books, exploring age appropriate developmental experiences and interacting with babies during ‘routine’ times of the day such as feeding and nappy change. 

Our Family Day Care Educators are highly experienced in baby care routines. Many have been providing care and education to infants for over a decade. Not only are they fully qualified, they are warm and nurturing individuals who form wonderful connections with the children and families in their service. It is a true partnership and just one of the many reasons why parents greatly value Family Day Care.
