Our aim at Kendall Academy is to provide the perfect blend of learning and play to our students, to bring out the best in every child.
Our infant program is specifically designed to create a nurturing and stimulating environment for your little one’s healthy development, while ensuring their safety and enjoyment. With the help of our experienced educators, your 10–14-month-old will be guided toward achieving key developmental milestones in areas such as physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth.
Watch Your Baby’s Developmental Milestones Unfold
Our dedicated educators provide individualized attention to each infant in our care due to our small student-to-teacher ratio. This allows them to encourage, motivate, and support the children’s learning and exploration through play. We believe in tailoring each child’s curriculum to their unique needs, to foster the achievement of their baby milestones as soon as they are ready.
Challenging but Never Overwhelming Curriculum
At this tender age, our goal is to foster age-appropriate exploration for your child in a fun manner that encourages a lasting love for learning. Within small, natural light-filled classrooms, our teachers and students work one-on-one in a totally personalized way.
At 10 months, there are several physical changes taking place, all of which we work to nourish and support during our time together. This includes important markers like developing a rhythm for feeding, sleeping, and being awake, sitting alone without support, transferring objects from one hand to another, napping 2-3 times daily, and more.
Social and Emotional Development
At Kendall Academy, we believe children should be able to communicate their feelings in a healthy, effective manner. At the age of 10 months, we’re focused on helping your baby respond to their name, express a fear of falling, spend time watching and observing, raise their arms to be picked up, show distress if a toy is taken away, imitate sounds and expressions, and much more–all while squeals, babbles, and smiles fill the air.
Brain nourishment is crucial at this stage of your baby’s infancy. By allowing your baby to learn in their own way inside a safe, stable environment, they’re able to develop healthy, hungry minds. By the end of the term, our goal is to have them cry to express a range of emotions, recognize familiar faces and sounds, babble expressively, explore objects, focus their eyes on small objects, and beyond.
