Nurturing interactions with infant caregivers and teachers through frequent one of one contact in daily routines is a primary goal of our infant program. Our staff’s nurturing and caring approach enable infants at Pal’s to form healthy and loving bonds with others that provide them with a sense of security and confidence. We believe this approach combined with exceptional physical care and strong collaborations between caregivers and parents, is essential to the healthy overall development of infants.

Once infants enjoy a sense of security and caring the stage is set for learning. Learning initially takes place as children touch, manipulate, and experiment with real objects, and interact with people. Social interaction with other infants and daily learning experiences that stimulate cognitive learning and physical development all prepare our infants for successful transition to their toddler years.

Make Summer Safe for Kids!!!

Beat the heat and sun

Heat-related illness happens when the body’s temperature control system is overloaded. Infants and children up to 4 years of age are at greatest risk. Even young and healthy people can get sick from the heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather. For heat-related illness, the best defense is prevention.

  • Never leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open.
  • Dress infants and children in loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Schedule outdoor activities carefully, for morning and evening hours.
  • Stay cool with cool showers or baths.
  • Seek medical care immediate if your child has symptoms of heat-related illness.

Just a few serious sunburns can increase you and your child’s risk of skin cancer later in life. Their skin needs protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays whenever they’re outdoors.

  • Cover up. Clothing that covers your and your child’s skin helps protect against UV rays.
  • Use sunscreen with at least SPF (sun protection factor) 15 and UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) protection every time you and your child go outside.
