Las Vegas Infant Care: How baby talk can substantially enhance your child’s language learning capabilities
Baby talk has been proven to enhance a child’s learning capabilities. Baby talk utilizes certain sounds and basic words that are far easier for your infant to understand than normal speech. Even if your child does not fully grasp the language yet, he or she will begin to understand basic intonations and expressions. Facial expressions can also support your infant’s understanding. Kids ‘R’ Kids of South West Las Vegas explores language skills and baby talk.
Learning intonation and sounds
The more you talk to your child, and the more you exaggerate intonation, but always in a positive way, the faster he or she will pick up language. Language involves intonation and sounds as well as specific words to communicate meaning. You can use this to your child’s advantage. When you talk to your infant, speak with exaggerated intonation, but always kind intonation, never strident. You can sound out syllables as you speak, so that your child can learn both the meaning as well as the sound structure of each word.
Talk about everything
Whether you are driving your car, cleaning out the cupboard or even changing diapers, talk to your child while doing it. Describe whatever you are doing out out loud so that your infant will become accustomed to many different words and meanings. You will be surprised at how much your child will begin to understand. Constant talking to your child will assist in your child’s language acquisition and development and provide countless examples that your child can learn from.

The best aspect about a growing child is how he or she can learn vast quantities of intricate information while simply enjoying games and playtime. A child is born with an innate ability to learn and absorb everything that happens. Your child will further boost this learning ability by engaging in age-appropriate games and activities that are fun. We will explore some fun activities and games for your day care child.
Any games are great for learning
A child has the ability to learn regardless of what game he or she is playing. The key is to simply make the game fun, while including imagination and encouragement. Utilizing this technique a child will be able to effectively use his or her imagination, making the games a real experience, resulting in learning new lessons.
Any activities can be made into games
Any simple activity can actually be made into a game. Engage the child in collecting or rescuing laundry, or separating toys by particular colors or shapes. You can use chores as an example because all it takes for your child to enjoy an activity is the right amount of imagination.
Do not allow your child be bored at home or preschool. Encourage your child to develop an imagination that allows learning in any environment. You can enjoy fun games like “I spy with my little eye” or even make up new songs with your child, while teaching some of the important lessons in life.

A young child’s brain is able to rapidly and efficiently internalize new ideas and concepts very quickly, and utilize these in everyday life. It makes sense that you should use this time in your child’s life to help him or her develop healthy learning habits. We will take a closer look at some of the healthy interests you can enjoy with your preschooler to help promote curiosity and a strong desire for learning.
It is easy to enjoy creating edible science with your preschooler. Not only do you get to have fun making strange concoctions and substances, but sometimes you can even eat them. One example of this is making sugar-crystals by dissolving sugar into water, then obtaining a stick and resting it in the water. The sugar cannot evaporate but the water will, and the crystals are left hanging onto the stick.
Science can also produce exciting toys when done right. These include volcanoes, bouncing or transparent eggs, glitter fountains and even goop that dances to music. A fantastic example of this is how you can make unique lava lamps with water, oil, a few drops of food coloring and Alka Seltzer. These are excellent activities for any preschooler, and can promote a healthy interest in the world of science.

First time parents are often apprehensive at the prospect of welcoming a newborn baby in their home. Infant care isn’t easy. There are a number of things which you can do around your home in order to prepare for the arrival of your new infant. We will take a closer look at a few tips.
Preparing your baby’s room
Decorating and preparing a baby’s room is exciting and joyful for expectant parents. It signifies the impending arrival of your child. Remember that safety should always be a top priority in your infant’s room. Choosing colors, and painting the room should be completed well in advance. Make sure that all of the essentials are available, including a crib, dresser, changing station and a few toys. Stock up on important supplies that are necessary to care for your infant.
Baby proof your home
Baby proofing is an essential part of child care for all new parents. It is most important to ensure that your child cannot put his or her fingers in electrical outlets, or reach any harmful substances. Safety measures will need to be reevaluated when your child is able to crawl and walk. Baby proofing should be a continual exercise, and not just something that is carried out once.
Invest in a quality baby monitor
Baby monitors provide new parents with the peace of mind they need while their new child slumbers in his or her room. Purchasing and installing a quality baby monitor will alert you to any problems while your infant is alone and out of your sight.

Brain development is a crucial part of your child’s early development. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of South West Las Vegas, we offer a high quality child care program, and our curriculum includes a brain development program that holistically and comprehensively supports your child’s brain development. Below is a list of useful ways you can nurture your child’s brain at home.
Use positive discipline
Do not shame your child when disciplining. Create clear consequences that will not frighten him or her. Keep rules simple. When your child misbehaves, come down to his or her level and speak in a serious and stern tone. Do not yell, however reinforce the rules and the consequences of the actions and offer alternative behaviors. In this way you are teaching consequences and responsibility and supporting brain development as your child thinks about the situation, reinforcing prior learning.
Encouraging your child to exercise will lead to a healthy body which supports a developing brain. When your child exercises, the blood flows to the brain more efficiently and builds new brain cells. Set a good example by exercising together. This also will help build good early habits for the future.
Encourage healthy eating
Make sure your child eats healthy food, including plenty of fruits and vegetables. Giving your child healthy food boosts brain power and is also good for the body. Make mealtimes a positive experience for your child, allowing participation in meal preparation from time to time. This will boost self confidence and teach decision making.
Stimulate the brain
Provide plenty of fun and educational games and activities to keep your child’s mind active and engaged when not at school.

The old adage of “always finish what is on your plate” is, unfortunately, one that we need to consider more carefully. Recent studies and research have revealed that a preschool child’s weight has almost no relation to physical exercise, but rather how much food is being consumed on a daily basis. Although parents want the best for their children and want them to grow up healthy and strong, forcing a child to eat when he or she is full or does not want to is one of the leading causes of obesity.
Trust your child’s instincts
Every human being has built-in instincts that let him or her know when nourishment is required. Unfortunately, a vast number of parents do not understand this and have specific ideas about timing and amounts of food for children to eat. This causes the child to bypass the natural rewards system of food enjoyment, and the body learns that instead of finding suitable nourishment it must simply find more food.
Promote a healthy lifestyle
This, of course, does not mean that healthy exercise does not help fight obesity, but the problem and solution both lie in your child’s eating behavior. Setting healthy eating behaviors while young is critical in order that your child learns good habits for the future. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of South West Las Vegas is much more than a childcare center. We understand that a child needs the perfect balance of healthy eating, physical exercise, academic instruction, and emotional stimulation in order to thrive.

If you are having a problem getting your child to eat, you are not alone. So many children go through a phase of being a picky eater that it has almost become recognized as a natural stage in childhood development rather than a learned behavior, but it is one that they will outgrow. Unfortunately, it can happen at any time, whether your infant is refusing to nurse or your toddler will not eat anything except hotdogs. This can be stressful for parents and caregivers, since we want our children to stay healthy and to grow through proper nutrition. Here is some advice on why your child is being picky and what to do:
● Infant not nursing: Since your child is helpless at this stage and unable to communicate, it is a good idea to have your pediatrician check him out in order to rule out any potential medical problems. If there is no medical reason for refusing to nurse, your infant may be on a “nursing strike.” Pumping your milk into a bottle, changing your nursing position, holding your infant close against your skin, or feeding your infant when he is drowsy are all tactics which might help.
● Lack of routine: Keeping feeding times to a strict routine will give your infant plenty of time to digest and get hungry again before the next meal time. This is especially important when your infant starts eating solid foods, since you want your child to try new foods and get vital nutrition without getting filled up too much to take in their milk or formula.
● Rushed introduction: Infants like to explore their world and food is no different. Take the time to let your child look at, smell and handle a new food. This will help her accept it faster. Do not worry if she puts the food in her mouth and spits it out again, since it may take a few meals before she will accept something new.
The way to get your child to eat different foods, and to appreciate them, is by gently introducing new tastes into their diet at the right stages. Keeping it fun, light and exciting will help your child enjoy the experience of new foods! At the Farmer’s Market held at Gardens Park on Tuesdays, you will find a wide variety of colorful, fresh organic produce that will be healthy, nutritious and tasty to eat.
