Infants (6 Weeks - 15 Months)

Our infant space is licensed for 7 infants and will have 2 teachers when 3 or more are present.  The ages range from 6 weeks to 15 months.  Teachers in this room will have an aid to help out when needed.  The Infant program offers a safe, secure and loving environment while away from home.  Your little ones will enjoy an atmosphere designed especially for them, with their needs in mind.  We will foster learning in a creative world benefiting each infant’s rapid mind and body development.  We will ensure positive and supportive interactions with teachers.

Activities will include singing, reading, talking, physical touch and holding of each infant.  We will promote exploration with movement and sensory opportunities.  We will foster opportunities which will aid in children discovering the world around them while maintaining a respectful partnership among parents and caregivers.  We will ensure regular communication to meet the ever-changing needs of your infants.  We are committed to creating a strong bond with your precious one and to ensure a great start in life!  Infants are on their own schedules.  Around 12 to 13 months we start to get them on the toddler routine and schedule!  The following is a typical Day in the infant room.
