Our Littlest Adventures
Infants (6+ weeks)
In our Infant room, it is our goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment which encourages exploration and growth. Our infant to teacher ratio is 1 teacher to 4 infants. Each teacher is responsible for 4 children and will become their Primary Care Teacher.
The purpose of Primary Care Teachers is to ensure that each child’s needs for intimacy and safety are met thereby fostering trust in adults and enhancing the positive emotional and social development of the child. Our infant teachers work together as a team to make sure all of the children in their classrooms needs are being met promptly. Each day a daily sheet will be sent home that documents all of the child’s feedings, diaper changes, napping times, and milestones. Infant’s schedules are on demand.
During enrollment we provide parents with an infant information sheet that are given to teachers to help them with a general feeding schedule, likes, dislikes and any information that will help their teacher get to know your child. Our teachers have many wonderful activities for our infants. Activities include many different opportunities that lead to new experiences and the beginning of learning.
Teachers take advantage of care giving “moments” during diaper changes and feeding times to talk, coo, sing and interact with them. Teachers organize their rooms to provide new adventures which will foster motor, cognitive, language and social development.
