Cognitive Development 

Cognitive development for your baby means the learning process of memory, language, thinking and reasoning. Your baby is learning to recognize the sound of your voice. He / She is also learning to focus her vision from the periphery or the corner of her eyes to the center. Language development is more than uttering sounds ("babble") or mama/dada. Listening, understanding, and knowing the names of people and things are all components of language development. During this stage, your baby is also developing bonds of love and trust with you. The way you cuddle, hold, and play with your baby will set the basis for how he will interact with you and others.

Positive Parenting

·         Talk to your baby. It is soothing to hear your voice.

·         When your baby makes sounds, answer him by repeating and adding words. This will help him learn to use language.

·         Read to your baby. This helps her develop and understand language and sounds.

·         Sing to your baby.

·         Play music. This helps your baby develop a love for music and math.

·         Praise your baby and give him lots of loving attention.

·         Spend time cuddling and holding your baby. This helps her feel cared for and secure.

·         The best time to play with your baby is when he's alert and relaxed. Watch your baby closely for signs of being tired or fussy so that you can take a break.

The five pillars of Lil’ Munchkins are strength, balance, movement, stability and flexibility. Our aim is to have healthy kids, healthy families, healthy communities.

The thrill of accomplishment from achieving a physical task builds self-esteem and confidence that carry over into all aspects of a child’s life. Interaction with our highly trained staff provides children the opportunity to establish warm relationships with compassionate adults, thus raising their level of comfort as they begin preschool/kindergarten. Our Lil' Munchkins Kids learn more about themselves as they develop independence, self-discipline, social skills and even a sense of humor, all of which lead to an increased feeling of self-worth. A child who feels good about him/herself has a jumpstart on the path to success.
