Infant Childcare (6 Weeks-1 Year)

At The Sunshine House of Charleston, SC, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your infant is used to receiving at home. In our infant daycare, we utilize the primary caregiver system. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver and will work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules. While your baby is playing, your infant is also learning. Using our individualized Brain Connect Infant Curriculum, each week your caregiver will create a lesson plan for your baby, tailored to your infant’s interests and development.
