At Le Parc Place we implement S.T.A.G.E.S into our infants’ daily curriculum. We believe S.T.A.G.E.S is an intricate part of the overall learning and development for infants, as they experience all that’s new and exciting in the world around them. The Goal is for both the caregiver and your baby to create a bond that insures Security, Trust, Awareness, Growth, Enrichment and most of all Safety.
At LPP we understand an infants needs to feel comfortable and secure with their caregivers. The familiarity with daily routine and expectations of knowing they are cared for and nurtured throughout their day allows for bonding and a sense of security, which is essential to their overall ability to learn and trust their caregiver.
The development of trust is best when there is a daily rhythm and flow. As caregivers become familiar with your babies individualized needs, continued growth and development patterns, infants will not only begin to depend on emotional responses such as being held, cuddled and cared for, but will also sense the connection of trust between themselves and their caregiver.
As the bond continues between your baby and their caregiver senses become an important part of communicating. Once your baby begins to pass the stage of smell for recognizing what is safe and pleasant, and reach their comfort zone through daily hugging and cuddling, they will begin to feel more confident in their ability to rollover and move around on their own and that when things get really exciting.
Growth & Development
