Infant daycare program for Rise and Shine Daycare center in Fairfax VA

Infants Program

Focus:  "Trust”

Ages 6 weeks - 16 Months

Babies have a strong need to feel secure with their surroundings, it is at this time that we work in developing trust so that he or she will feel safe and secure in the world.  Establishing a routine is very important in making them feel comfortable with their surroundings.

At Rise and Shine Daycare, babies are catered for in a  room which is warmly decorated. They are given individual care and attention and are provided with toys to stimulate their physical and intellectual development.   Teachers take a very hands on approach and provide plenty of physical contact to stimulate trust.




Reading -- Reading is fun and should start early!  Our teachers will ensure that your baby is read to everyday. 


Singing -- Nursery songs will be accompanied with hand gestures.  Soon your child will start using those gestures when he or she hears the songs.


Gym Play -- Babies will get a workout on our little mats specially designed for babies.  This activity with help them strengthen their core and help development.


"Nature" Strolls  -- Nice day out?  Babies will get to enjoy it as they are taken on a nice stroll around our beautiful grounds.   Our center is located away from traffic and features long, green yards, professional landscaping and a quiet, peaceful environment.




Our teachers get excited about your child's milestones too!  As your child begins to grow and reach new milestones (crawling, clapping, standing, walking, etc), we'll make our best effort to provide you with pictures of videos the same day they happen.  We celebrate with the baby and encourage continued activity for each  milestone your child reaches.  You know your child is loved and cared for when the teachers genuinely feel joy when your child reaches a new milestone.
