In our infant room the goal of our staff is to nurture each individual child with personal care. The emphasis is on that child’s development, focusing activities for that child around their age and developmental level.  

By keeping each child’s day focused on their individual needs, schedules, and development we are able to create strong bonds, build quality relationships, and foster each infant’s growth at their own pace. 

Infants develop new skills every day!  They explore and learn about their world through their senses and emerging motor skills.

Babies are born curious and ready to learn. We create infant learning environments to provide experiences that respond to infants’ natural curiosity and emerging skills.

Because communication is the key to keeping parents involved and aware of their child’s activities and growth while at the center we will provide the following:

  • A daily sheet tracking each infant’s activities, meals, diapering, and sleep.

  • The opportunity to develop relationships between the classroom and the families through our family events and activities.

  • Parent/teacher conferences two times per year covering each infant’s development and growth.

  • Frequent conversations between teachers and parents either in person or by phone.

  • Our center’s open door policy which allows parents to visit at any time and spend time in the classroom.

Our infant classroom is equipped with developmentally appropriate materials and equipment to enable the children to learn and grow.

Although most of our activities and interactions with the infants take place in their classroom, we also give the infants the opportunity to explore and move in bigger ways in our large muscle outside room where climbing, crawling, jumping, walking, riding, throwing balls and much more are encouraged. 

There are multiple sources of developmentally appropriate stimulation in the classroom.  It is critical that the learning environment is physically safe and clean so that infants can safely explore and interact with the other children, adults and materials in the classroom.
