Traffic in Petaling Jaya can be atrocious and can hinder our schedules – especially when we are trying to pick our children up from their daycare an nursery in PJ.  This is why finding a daycare and nursery with extended hours in PJ can support us in stressing less – we don’t have to brave the traffic in order to avoid an overcharge at our child’s school because we were ten minutes late!  Which daycare and nursery in PJ has extended hours for busy working parents?  That’s right, Little Human Scholars!

While Little Human Scholars has a full daycare centre and nursery, they host two separate programmes for babies (one for infants and the others for 8 months plus).  They take children as young as two months old and they have the right staff equipped with knowledge, know-how and most importantly, love and compassion.  Keeping a very small teacher to child ratio (1 teacher per three children), they ensure that your baby will be kept safe and provided a stimulating environment to grow, learn and explore.

The teachers and facilitators at Little Human Scholars school in PJ are specially selected for their baby programme so they can best fill a nurturing role in a home-like environment where they can safely watch, interact with and work with your child’s development.

Throughout the day, your baby and/or toddler will be exposed to different invigorating activities such as:

                    Flashcards                                    Physical Movement

                    Story time                                     Nursery Rhymes

                    Songs                                              Free Play

In this programme they also introduce the Grolier education system to prepare the children for playschool one where they will learn jolly phonics before entering into our IGCSE syllabus.  We keep in mind that babies need frequent breaks in order to flourish and as such we provide them frequent rest periods in between activities.

Little Human Scholars Baby Programme

So what exactly goes on in the baby programme at Little Human Scholars?  What activities and exercises go on that provides an environment for a baby to grow and develop happily and healthily?

1)     Introduction to phonetics

Even though Little Human Scholars enrols babies as young as two (2) months old, this doesn’t mean that the child isn’t having their own experience of the world.  Babies are very sensitive, and though they may not be able to speak yet, outer stimuli helps them to focus, develop and fine-tune their skills.  The nannies coo along with the babies and do what they can to get them to eventually mimick them, even if it takes a few months for the child to develop the skills to do so.

2)     Song time / Nursery Rhymes

Again, stimuli is important for growing and developing babies.  The nannies sing songs daily, often enunciating the words to further enforce phonetic learning.  Saying nursery rhymes also helps babies to focus, especially from repetition and patterns that are spoke during the rhyme.

3)     Story time

The nannies at Little Human Scholars are incredibly passionate about what they do, even if it telling a simple story.  A baby in the nursery gets to experience intonations in the nannies’ voice as well as see facial expressions from up close.

4)     Free play

Every child needs a little time to explore on their own (supervised of course), and babies are no different.  We feature an activity called “tummy time” for our little tots where they are surrounded by toys and have the opportunity to stretch their little arms and legs out.

5)     Nap Time

Babies love to nap, just not always in the middle of the night when mommy and daddy would prefer it!  Little Human Scholars gives the babies ample time to rest so when they wake up refreshed, we can get back to playtime!

6)     Bath Time

The staff at Little Human Scholars understands that mommies and daddies sometimes have hectic schedules, and a bath may not always be applicable in the home.  They offer this extra service to the infants and babies in the nursery programme.

7)     Sensory Exercises

Who doesn’t like a massage?  Typically, in the morning or after bath time the babies are given a light massage on their arms, legs and backs to help support their circulation.

8)     Outdoor Exploration

Unless there is haze or unfavourable weather, the babies do go outside with the nannies for a nice change of scene.  Outside there are new sounds, smells and sights that help stimulate their curiousity.

In short, finding a full day daycare centre in PJ near University hospital, Jaya One, Jaya33, PJ Old Town, PJ New Town, IT Mall and Jalan Gasing doesn’t have to cost a fortune AND you don’t have to give up all the pros to hiring a nanny instead.  Our philosophy is to treat every child like family, and we do this by providing excellent service for reasonable prices and for going beyond the usual call of duty.
