The infant program emphasizes a nurturing environment, introducing babies to healthy social and emotional interaction, language acquisition, body awareness, and motor control. The center believes each infant has his or her own schedule. Therefore, our infant program is designed around this concept. The day includes napping, eating, quiet play, activity time, and outside time.
A trusted caregiver provides changing, feeding, cuddling, and nurturing. An early childhood professional will plan an educationally sound group experience. By combining a family-type experience and a group experience, the child will have the best of both worlds.
The curriculum of an infant program includes providing infants with a wide variety of activities and experiences that will enable them to develop new skills and learn more about their world. An infant program is more than the children in the program and the people who provide the care for those children. It is the place where adults set up an environment for young human beings to grow and develop in their own way and in their own time.
Our infant program is designed around the physical, emotional, social, and educational needs of children. Given the diversity in ages, the children each have different developmental needs that are considered when setting up and planning activities for them.
