Every day in the darling ducklings room is an amazing blend of experiences. It’s cuddling and rocking to give a bottle and sooth to sleep. It's helping to build blocks, playing pattycake and singings songs. It's teaching each child how to be social and how an older child can be gentle with our younger babies. The children progress from drinking bottles, to learning to eat puffs and cheerios, to eating solid table foods and drinking from a sippy cup.
The ages in our room are 6 weeks to 18 months. As our babies grow from one month to the next they learn so much. We enjoy watching them grow and learn. Making our babies feel loved and secure is our number one goal, because after that all they need to worry about is learning.
