Your infant’s early education at Villa Bloom
Discover how our five focus areas provide your baby with endless opportunities to learn and grow.
1. Communicating with others
Villa Bloom helps your infant learn to engage with others. We talk with your child and communicate verbally. Using non-verbal gestures, we tell stories and sing songs to model conversational skills and use picture books to build associations between sounds, objects and words.
2. Building brainpower
Villa Bloom prepares your infant to think and reason. We help your child explore the concepts of cause and effect, trial and error and object permanence through play. We provide a variety of materials in different colours, sizes, textures and shapes and encourage the use of all five senses to discover the world.
3. Making new friends
Villa Bloom lays the foundation for your infant to develop trusting relationships. We respond to your baby with sensitivity and attention. We use words, facial expressions and eye contact to communicate and use family photos to promote self-awareness and continuity with your child’s home.
4. Growing a healthy body
Villa Bloom helps your infant improve mobility and coordination. We support your baby as he or she rolls from side to side and learns to crawl, stand and walk. We support the development of motor skills with blocks and shape boards and meet your child’s individual needs for rest and nutrition.
5. Nurturing creativity
Villa Bloom encourages your child to express individuality. We provide paint, crayons and other tools that promote artistic exploration and creativity, support imaginative play with photo cards and puppets and encourage self-expression through movement and music.
