This is a classroom full of love, learning, and laughter. We are committed to providing your child with a safe environment that will encourage his/her development. Young infants thrive on the warmth and caring that comes from a close relationship with their caregiver. Feelings about security influence an infant’s inclination to explore, and becomes part of the baby’s identity. Learning they can count on being cared for helps babies build a sense of security.
There are many developmental stages that occur during your child’s first years and we can’t wait to be a part of your child’s growth. We as teachers want to assist your child as they achieve all of the new and exciting milestones that they will be discovering.
We encourage open parent-teacher interaction to keep consistency with schedules and routines. We welcome any questions you may have. Everyday is such a pleasant experience and we truly love your child and want the best for him/her. We are grateful for the chance to know your family and to be apart of your child’s most important developmental years!
Learning Activities Include:
Language and Communication: Teachers will sing songs, play games and expose babies to variety of books. The infant classroom is a language-rich environment as teachers seize teachable moments to talk to each baby throughout the day. Teachers also use baby sign to help young infants learn to communicate their needs.
Cognitive Development: Our stimulating classroom is filled with toys that shake, rattle, and roll. The toys, soft play mats, pictures and bin full of books all encourage the babies to explore and discover the world around them. Teachers work closely to engage children in simple games that teach prediction skills and an understanding of cause and effect.
Social and Emotional Development: Throughout the day there are countless opportunities for teachers to help babies feel safe and secure, though cuddles and nurturing exchanges. They are inclusive of family wishes, needs, and cultures.
Motor Development: Babies are working on new motor skills every day. Our infant rooms are filled with equipment to facilitate motor development, and our teachers are talented at helping infants meet their next stage of motor development. Teachers are hands on all throughout the day, helping with tummy time, encouraging exploration and supporting baby growth!
Creative Development: Our teachers are gifted at exposing babies to a number of art forms including finger-painted works of art, fun sensory activities and lots of music and movement with many types of musical instruments.
Outdoor Time: Using our large strollers, teachers take the babies outside whenever weather permits. They go on short walks and visit the playground where they can often swing and watch other children playing.
