Soft objects, books, music, and toys are all a part of our warm, responsive infant environment. So are loving caregivers, who spend the day talking, singing, and playing games with your child.
Each baby has its own crib, furnished with a sheet and a bumper pad. Feel free to bring a blanket and other items to make your baby feel secure. A daily written report keeps you up-to-date on your baby’s sleeping, eating, and diapering schedule.
The infant curriculum is divided into five major areas of development – Fine Motor, Gross Motor, Intellectual, Social/Emotional, and Language. Children develop at their own pace. Staff continually monitor and observe each child for normal developmental patterns. Staff set goals according to the guidelines in our curriculum for age-appropriate development. They then use the creative activities suggested in the curriculum to assist the children in meeting their developmental goals.
