With our older infants, the program involves all of the younger program as well as creative activities, gross motor, drama play, sensory and science activities. These old folks
are beginning to transition onto the toddler schedule with only one nap after lunch and are learning to feed themselves along with other self-help skills.
Each and every day, the teachers will complete an infant daily schedule for you, giving you more insight into their day. It will include such items as feeding; what they ate,
how much and what time; diapering; sleeping along with their various activities they participated in throughout the day. A copy of this schedule will be on your child's cubby at
the end of each day.
Our infant teachers truly take time to learn the children's development and create programs for them each week. With this age group, we do allow the parents to visit the center
with their child during a transition period. This period consists of two days: The first day the parents visit with their child for one and a half hours & on the second day the
child visits alone for one and a half hours. This time allows the teachers to observe the interactions between child and parent as well as helping the parent in getting to know
the teachers. We want our parents to feel as comfortable as possible with our program and begin to develop a trusting relationship with us before they leave their little wee ones
in our care.
