Compassionate Infant Care

Trust your child to the loving, capable staff at Baby Galileo PreSchool and Daycare in Jersey City, New Jersey. Our infant care program is designed to provide your little bundle of joy with everything he or she needs in a safe and healthy space.
Baby - Infant Care
      

Learning to trust those around them is the first stage of development for every infant. Our caregivers allow infants to reach this milestone by providing a secure and nurturing environment where infants can engage in sensory/tactile activities. We provide specialized care for each and every little one. Infants are given the opportunity to develop strong bonds with their caregivers and to learn new things about the world around them.

Our infant nursery is designed for the safety, health and comfort of our “bundle of joy”.  Our nursery has been recently upgraded to include new full view cribs.  Our cribs allow us to see our little ones from all angles at all times.  They are also equipped with acrylic mirrors which enable our little ones to bask in the joy of discovering who the person is in the mirror.  High chairs, a Baby Papasan and an infant pull-up mirror that aids our little ones in learning how to walk are a few of the nursery highlights. We enhance your baby's development with colorful toys, soft play tunnels and soft music. As our infants mature they are exposed to short educational videos appropriate for their developmental needs.
