The Baby College’s hallmark curriculum follows Touchpoints™, an infant development model created by Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, the late founder of the Brazelton Institute at Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Brazelton’s approach maintains a balance between theory and practice, in that it asks parents to implement what they are learning in real-time to help solidify concepts and deepen understanding.
Parents and caretakers learn the typical stages of cognitive, social, and emotional development for children ages zero to three. They graduate the program armed with best practice strategies to engage in meaningful interactions with their children and raise them in a healthy and safe home.
Additionally, the program touches on appropriate discipline, early immunization, and adequate healthcare. Parents gain the knowledge to ensure adequate care at home and also how and when to advocate for their child’s optimal care.
