Our Infant Programs offer a warm, caring and nurturing environment where children are provided with individual and group learning opportunities through sensory, art, music and physical activities both indoors and outdoors.
The teacher to child ratio is 1 teacher for every 3 children, which enables our teachers to provide individualized care and learning for each infant to aid in their social, language and motor development.
Individual sleep and feeding routines, as outlined by parents, are followed by teachers to ensure a consistent and comfortable environment for each infant. For infants under the age of one, formula and foods are provided by the parents. Once an infant is ready, a hot, nutritious lunch, as well as healthy refreshments, are served daily.
Each day individual daily logs outlining diapering routines, naps, details of eating habits as well as a description of the special events or milestones experienced by the child are presented to each parent.
Parent and teacher collaboration are essential at the Infant developmental stage. Every quarter, parents can review an age-specific Developmental Checklist of each child’s progress, as observed by the teachers. Families are encouraged to have dialogue with the team members and together set goals to help the child meet developmental milestones.
Each of our sites has an age-appropriate Infant outdoor play space which provides the opportunity for teachers and children to extend social and physical development, as well as allows the children to experience nature first hand.
