Cubs Room

Cubs Room

In the Cubs Room at Little Leo's, our primary focus is to create a nurturing and stimulating environment that supports the optimal development of infants aged 0 to 1 year old. We understand that this is a critical stage in a child's life, where their brains are rapidly developing, and they are forming the foundation for future learning and social interactions.

Infants in the Cubs Room engage in sensory exploration. They have the opportunity to touch and feel various textured materials, such as soft blankets, plush toys, and tactile objects. These experiences help them develop their sense of touch and begin to understand the world around them.

Even at this early age, language development is crucial. Our Educators engage in gentle, responsive communication with infants, speaking to them, singing songs, and reading age-appropriate books. This exposure to language fosters the development of early communication skills and lays the foundation for future language acquisition.

Infants in this room work on developing their motor skills through activities such as tummy time and reaching for objects. Educators provide ample opportunities for babies to practice rolling over, crawling, and grasping objects. These activities help strengthen muscles and develop coordination.

 In the Cubs Room, we prioritise building strong bonds between infants and Educators. Our Educators provide responsive care, ensuring that babies feel safe and secure. Through gentle interactions, infants learn to trust and form healthy attachments, which are essential for their emotional development.

Establishing a consistent routine is crucial for infants. In the Cubs Room, we maintain a predictable schedule for feeding, napping, and playtime. This helps infants develop a sense of security and predictability in their daily lives and is customised to match their routines at home.

While infants are not yet engaging in complex social interactions, the Cubs Room provides a gentle introduction to being around other babies. They have the opportunity to observe and interact with the other babies, which lays their future foundation for socialisation.

Above all, safety and comfort are paramount in the Cubs Room. Our Educators are qualified to meet the unique needs of each infant, including providing comfort during feeding, diaper changes, and naptime.
