Infant Spanish Immersion Early Learning Program

(Downtown location only)

Rayito de Sol’s Infant program is designed to balance social, physical, cognitive, and language development to stimulate the needs of the whole child.

During their first year, babies start to develop skills they will use for the rest of their lives. The normal growth of babies can be broken down into the following areas:

Gross motor: controlling the head, sitting, crawling, maybe even starting to walk
Fine motor: holding a spoon, picking up a piece of cereal between thumb and finger
Sensory: seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling
Language: starting to make sounds, learning some words, understanding what people say
Social: the ability to play with family members and other children
