Does Daycare Benefit My Infant?

At Bright Start Louisville, we are thrilled to offer children a wonderful early childhood education to preschoolers. However, that doesn’t mean daycare only has benefits for preschoolers!

Daycare benefits children of all ages, even infants! Here are some top ways daycare can benefit your baby, even before they’re a year old:

Social Skills

Babies not only enjoy social interaction, but this is also the primary way they learn. Since babies are not very mobile, almost every experience they have is a result of social interaction. Reading books,  playing with toys, and learning how to interact with other babies and adults are all a result of social observation or interaction.


While there is room for flexibility with naps and feeding, our nursery still has designated times for certain activities. This helps babies learn a routine, which helps them sleep and eat better and be happier babies.

Strong Immune System

It’s true: kids are often sick at daycare; this isn’t a bad thing! Babies exposed to germs early develop stronger immune systems than peers who do not attend daycare. This pays off once children go to school, as they have fewer sick days since they have stronger immune systems.


Babies flourish with consistency and stability. So save yourself the headache of piecing together childcare between your significant other, family, and friends. Your baby will have no anxiety about who is watching them that day, which makes separation easier for both of you.

Bright Start Louisville offers exceptional childcare to children six weeks to 12 years old. We’re proud to offer a fun and educational preschool program that prepares your child for kindergarten per state educational standards.

If you’re looking for excellent childcare that gives your child a head start in life, contact Bright Start Louisville today!
