DeeNest at The Deens Academy caters to the needs of children in the age group of 6 months and above throughout the year.
At DeeNest, we care for infants and toddlers, can enrich children’s early experience. It can also be a therapeutic component of services, providing a safe and consistent base for protection, prevention, and early development of the child. Our loving nurses/teachers begin the foundational work for later learning and help infants grow using the following techniques.
• Language development–using books, songs and activities that match your child’s development level.
• Cognitive development—using activities like, hunt and find, and shape-sorting toys.
• Motor Skill development — grasping toys, tummy time, and toys to push and pull around the room.
• Sensory development — touching items with various textures and feeling materials.
We provide sumptuous balanced meals which children enjoy as part of our program.
Deenest has spacious rooms that meet an infant’s need to move, explore, express and relax. Personal cribs, separate areas for changing and feeding and our booties policy, which requires that all shoes be left outside when entering DeeNest, ensures clean playing, eating and sleeping spaces.
But as much love as we give, we never forget that you are your child’s most important teacher. So we’ll work with you, give you daily reports and offer tips on how to reinforce what your child learns in his or her time with us.
