The Importance of Infant Stimulation and How Daycare Can Help

Friday, March 22, 2019


During the first year of life, your baby’s brain is growing so fast. Stimulation helps to engage them mentally, helps develop their senses, and is something that every baby needs. Stimulating your baby's senses will enable them to reach developmental milestones faster, as well as aid in the development of motor skills.

Infant stimulation can help improve your baby’s attention span, memory, curiosity and nervous system development as well.  

How Orlando Daycare Can Help with Infant Stimulation

At an Orlando daycare such as Kids & Company Learning Center, your infant will be exposed to many different activities, smells, people, and experiences - which all help them to learn and develop.


Activities – From shaking a rattle, to bouncing in a bouncer, activity will help stimulate a baby. Bouncer seats help stimulate babies by using different senses such as touch, seeing and hearing the different things on a bouncer seat. It also allows them to use their muscles, eyes, ears and hands.

Textures – Introducing different objects and textures to your baby will help them uses their senses, learn, and grow.

Talking – Infants will pick up on voice and how to talk quicker when exposed to people talking often. This is possible at an Orlando daycare unlike hiring a babysitter, who might not spend as much time talking with your baby.

Smells – Food, perfumes, toys and whatever else is around can help your infant to start to understand the world around them. Your baby or infant will learn that different things smell differently. This stimulation helps your baby grow and learn.

Music - Studies have showed that music plays an important role in the lives of infants and toddlers. Children respond to music in such a positive manner. When the mother or caregiver sings to the baby, the baby responds, becomes attentive, and makes eye contact.


At Kids & Company, our small teacher to child ratio is extremely important to us. This way, we can spend plenty of one-on-one time with your child, holding them and interacting. The sensitivity and education of our infant and toddler caregivers promotes positive and healthy development for your young children.

Kids & Company offers so much more than the typical Orlando preschool and daycare. Free hot meals, free PM transportation, after school care until 7pm, and we even have the option for Saturday and night care at our Curry Ford location. With two locations in Orlando, there is a convenient location for you and your child.

If you have any questions about our programs, including: infant care, childcare, voluntary prekindergarten (VPK), or after school programs, give us a call at (407) 227-1015.
