Infant and Toddler

Our infants & toddler program 

Is designed to provide a warm welcoming environment where your baby can grow from a bundle of joy and curiosity. Parents and teachers work together to design daily routines to meet each infant's & toddlers Physical and emotional needs.

This program is used to develop the child's language, gross motor and small motor skills. Self-discipline, cooperation and creative expression are fostered through play activities. Exploration of manipulative toys, books, indoor and outdoor play, equipment and materials help develop the child's curiosity, creativity and independence. Art and music experiences with a variety of materials are an integral part of the program.

 

We talk with your child; communicate verbally and through non-verbal gestures; tell stories and sing songs to model conversational skills; and use picture books to build association between sounds, objects and words.

We respond to your baby with sensitivity and attention; use words, facial expressions, and eye contact to communicate; and use family photos to promote self-awareness and provide continuity with your child's home.

 

We help your child explore the concepts of cause-and-effect, trial-and-error, and object permanence through play; provide a variety of materials of different colors, sizes, textures, and shapes; and encourage the use of all five senses to discover the world.

 

We support your baby as he or she rolls from side-to-side and learns to crawl, stand, and walk; support the development of motor skills with blocks and shape boards; and meet your child's individual needs for rest and nutrition.

 

We provide paint, crayons, and other tools that promote artistic exploration and creativity; support imaginative play with photo cards and puppets; and encourage self-expression through movement and music.
