Infant Care Programme
Mulberry Learning’s Infant Care in Singapore offers Full-Day and Half-Day care options for babies and toddlers aged 2 to 17 months.
Our Infant & Toddler Programme
Experiential Learning has been considered by experts as one of the most interesting, engaging, and effective ways to acquire new concepts. At Mulberry Learning, our infant care programme focuses on the use of Experiential Learning as the main approach for infants and toddlers, enabling them to develop and learn through their own reflections and experiences. Children are encouraged to be expressive mini-explorers as their navigate their way through our beautifully-crafted learning spaces, discover how to play with classic toys, musical instruments, and textural materials.
Our Experiential Learning framework comprises the following 5 Learning Domains to ensure your child has fun learning in a safe and nurturing environment:
- Music & Stories
- Muscle Development
- Thematic Discovery
- Multi-Sensory Experience
These developmental outcomes are achieved through our signature programmes infused into daily schedules for the infants: Little ExplorerTM, Music StimulationTM, Muscle MasterTM, First TouchTM, and Colourful WorldTM.
Infant Care Experiential Learning Framework
Children are natural little explorers, they are always curious and fascinated by the world around them. At Mulberry Learning, we construct the learning environment and experiences to cater to their needs.
During Little ExplorerTM time every morning, infants and toddlers are given different materials to arouse their curiosity and encourage their free exploration. Observations are then made on each child’s interest and response to the stimuli, which subsequently informs how we choose to tailor their next learning adventure!
Infants and toddlers love rhythms and music. Whenever they hear a catchy tune during Music StimulationTM time, their faces light up, their little bodies would move to the beat, some may even attempt to hum along! Various studies show that music has a positive impact on children’s creativity, spatial intelligence, emotional growth, and cognitive development. Since music helps to spark connections in the brain, we provide different genres of music for our infants to create a variety of atmospheres and moods in the environment to stimulate your child’s growth and foster their creative minds from an early age.
Besides musical stimulation, infants are exposed to a world of nursery rhymes, poems and stories through Rhymes & Stories. Animated songs and story-telling sessions capture your little one’s attention and stimulate speech development. From cooing and babbling, to saying their first word, we help your child quickly build language foundations early.
In children’s early years, they are in a rapid stage of physical development and require consistent exercises to facilitate and stimulate this growth spurt. At Mulberry Learning, our assortment of baby-appropriate gym equipment like cruising bars, floor mats, gym blocks, push cars, see-saws and balls allow children to flex their big and small muscles. Simple activities like pushing a ball during Muscle MasterTM time allows them to practise hand-eye coordination and develop spatial awareness. Besides an indoor play environment, we also have outdoor areas to vary their experiences.
At Mulberry Learning, children get to discover the world around them through themes in our Colourful WorldTM. Every fortnight, a fun new theme is introduced based on your child’s daily encounters. Themes such as “Water”, “I Love You” and “Peek-a-Boo” are full of excitement and are rich in hands-on experiences. These activities allow children to engage in language and social interactions.We believe each child can embark on an individual learning odyssey when given well-designed learning environments, so we do our best to build a self-motivated and passionate lifelong learner from young!
Children explore the world through their five senses – touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing. Our First TouchTM programme is designed to enable sensory experiences for infants and toddlers! They are guided to explore their surroundings through various activities, objects, and thematic experiences as they discover and comprehend the world around them.
