Infants / Toddlers
(Six weeks to 30 Months)
Welcome to parenthood! We hope you are enjoying your growing family and starting to get a little sleep. We understand how difficult it is for many new parents to leave their precious little one and return to work. We work hard to make the transition a bit easier for both you and your baby. Our infant teachers are mature professionals with a background in child development. They write lesson plans with individualized goals and activities for each child. These activities are worked in throughout the day in between regular care giving such as feeding and diapering. Our youngest infants remain on individual schedules and routine care is provided on their own terms, according to the parent’s wishes. As the children grow, we help them integrate into a classroom routine as they prepare to move into older preschool classrooms.
We spend a great deal of time talking with our infants because we know that language is learned by adult modeling. We read books regularly throughout the day to instill an early love of literacy. We give young infants lots of tummy time, which is vital for good physical development. And one of our favorite parts of the day is giving each child lots of love, hugs, and cuddles. We do not believe that babies can be ‘spoiled’ by being held too frequently…we LOVE to hold our babies!
Since we know how much you miss your child during the day, we communicate electronically using Kid Reports. As a parent, you set the controls of how frequently you receive communication. You can receive a text every time we change a diaper or feed your baby. Or, you can choose to get a summary of your child’s day via email at the end of the day. We also love to surprise our parents with an occasional photo or video text of their child so you don’t miss out on all the cuteness we are enjoying!
