Little Wonders - Infants (10 months to 15 months)

At Everley Rose, we know that each stage of an infant’s life is gradual and full of new growth and discovery. Our late infant rooms are designed to stimulate their imagination and help them with their growing physical development needs. They’ll receive the same personalized care and attention as when they were infants, only now they get to use high chairs, have plenty of group play time and show off their new walking skills.

Late infant care is still a critical experience for parents. They’re just starting to assert themselves, but they still need that watchful, caring eye. That’s why we’ll continue to provide you with daily reports on all the important steps they’ve made, as well as their individual needs. All our teachers are certified in First Aid & CPR and have received the state requirements for infant care as well as continued early development education.

A Guide To Late Infant Development

Here’s some of the specific achievements you might expect from your infant at this age. Our staff are trained to look for and notify parents when these achievements are met.

  • Carrying large toys or several toys while walking (12-15 months)
  • Learning to walk alone without assistance (12-26 months)
  • Pulling toys behind while walking (13-16 months)
  • Learning to run or jog stiffly (16-18 months)
  • Climbing up and down from furniture without assistance (16-24 months)
