Infants 6 weeks-18 months
We have two separate infant rooms that allow us to separate mobile infants from non-mobile infants. When an infant is approximately 10 months of age, they are welcomed into the Older Infant Room. A loving, caring, nurturing environment is provided where the mobile infants can move around more freely without effecting the safety of the younger infants.
Each infant is on an individual schedule, depending on the infant’s needs and the parent’s desire. Infant teachers spend most of their day nurturing and taking special care of the needs of the infants. You will electronically receive Tadpoles reports each day regarding your child’s nap, feeding times and diaper changes, as well as new behaviors and learned skills. This information can help you meet your baby’s needs so the transition from COT to home is smooth.
The infant rooms provide a warm, cozy atmosphere for the babies. The rooms are filled with toys that stimulate large and small motor muscle movements, coordination, the senses, creative expression and socialization. Interaction with the children at this age is important.
Each infant will have their own sleeping area as well as their own storage area for their diapers, bottles, pacifiers and changes of clothing.
We have daily themes we follow to introduce creative play, small and large muscle movements, arts and crafts, music, science, math, language arts and sign language.
We honor parent’s choices and work hard to mirror preferences that have been established at home. We invite open communication with parents, because the more we are a team, the better the learning experience will be for the child.
