Infant Care Section
San Francisco International School infant care section strives hard to enrich children’s early experience. We make sure that nannies, children and parents will freely form and sustain the profound, reactive and respectful relationships that are the hallmark of quality
An infant or a toddler is on a stage wherein he or she is just forming the sense of identity. Here at SFIS, we understand that the process of forming a strong positive identity should occur in a setting that offers safety, protection, and affection. In the day-to-day give and take of good infant/ toddler child care, children and their caregivers relate in a way that looks much like a dance, with the child leading, the caregiver picking up the rhythm and following. When a caregiver reads and responds to the young child’s messages with sensitivity, the child’s hunger to be understood is satisfied.
