A purpose built program to grow with our infants.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children states “the earliest years are about relationships. Infants crave and develop attachments to special people in their lives.” It is our job as early childhood educators to assist your infant in developing positive expectations about people and themselves.

  • Young infants (0 to 9 months) seek security.
  • Mobile infants (8 to 18 months) are eager to explore.

Your child’s day will involve face to face language stimulation and opportunities to move in a safe environment that does not restrict their active curiosity. This process of environmental stimulation sets the stage for future neural activity. Therefore, we will provide visual, auditory and tactile sensory experiences that will stimulate these connections daily. We understand attachment and trust are critical elements to both social and intellectual growth therefor your child. Each infant will have a consistent caregiver who communicates the daily routines, health and classroom activities your infant is exposed to on a daily basis.

Creative Curriculum for Infants
This curriculum provides the basis of offering nurturing, language-rich routines and creating meaningful experiences every day. Through daily teaching tools your infant will have playful and engaging experiences with individualized opportunities to meet the needs of each unique child. Facilitating learning during routines allow for the caregiver to intentionally incorporate literacy, math, science, social studies, and physical skills in a developmentally appropriate way.
We believe no child is too young to be exposed to reading, through simple soft books with bright colors and daily exposure; your infant will be started on a path to a literacy balanced day.
Our infants will also have quality outdoor time, whether it is a cruise in our stroller or sitting under the canopy, we realize the importance of fresh air and natural sunlight in a safe yet stimulating way.
Our infant gross motor room is also available to visit on a daily basis, to provide your infant with a different perspective within their day and to encourage the art of moving in a safe, soft environment.
We also realize it is hard for some parents not to worry about the safety and well-being of their infant throughout the day so we provide complete eye contact via the web and our cameras to monitor your child at any time throughout your day. We also have a nurse on staff to assist with a medical emergencies should we need to provide them or get a recommendation for further treatment elsewhere.

Friendly

Our caring teachers learn from the experiences, knowledge, culture, and child-rearing beliefs of family members.

Play Areas

Classroom, infant/toddler gross motor room and outdoors!

Qualified

Great teachers understand typical development from birth through age 3. Knowing how the youngest children learn and develop helps professionals closely attune to individual children and their families.

Education

Our teachers understand the application of developmentally appropriate practice and are held to high expectations to maintain this in the classroom because of their education and training.

Experienced

Our teachers have backgrounds in early childhood fields and related experience.

Learning

Creative Curriculum for infants and toddlers.

HAPPY CHILDREN
HAPPY PARENTS

Our culinary arts room is a child appropriate kitchen that will be used to engage children in the process of food preparation. The focus will be on healthy food choices, sustainability and the use of whole foods rather than processed foods. Because the center will have vegetable gardens on the grounds, children will see the process of food preparation from “farm to table”.

They will be involved in the cultivation, composting, harvesting and cooking of a variety of foods. Cooking is an activity which easily integrates academic skills such as science, math and language arts while teaching the children how to work together and follow directions.

This space will allow children to come together in work groups to investigate a variety of topics related to science, technology, engineering and math. The goal here is to have children actively engaged in experiments, projects or exploration that is driven by their natural curiosity.

The lab will provide a space where these projects or experiments can be housed and revisited as children investigate and document their work. Research suggests that intellectual readiness rather than academic readiness may be the key to school success especially in terms of these critical skill areas.

An indoor gross motor room will encourage physical development through different types of play that will incorporate balance, hand-eye coordination, tumbling, dance, yoga, introduction to a variety of balls and calisthenics. Research has stated children do not engage in enough physical activity on a regular basis to incur health benefits. With this and other rising obesity statistics in our children today, we are dedicated to integrating physical activities throughout the day to improve the overall health of the children we serve.

Our creative arts room is equipped with work space and materials for a variety of creative expression ventures. Some examples would be: two and three dimensional art projects; painting; exploring water color; pottery, clay, and wire sculptures; paper mâché, and paper production are just some of the innovative projects we will introduce your children to so they can find different ways to express themselves and work with new materials while expanding their vocabulary. Projects may be individual or in small groups allowing for communication, planning and collaboration.

This room will have soft flooring, vinyl covered ramps, steps and bolsters for young crawlers and toddlers to move freely and safely. Infants need “tummy time” to develop strong trunks and neck stabilization. Toddlers will be able to work on balance, coordination and control in this “soft” room.

Schedules for infants are used as a guide for the day. Infant classroom schedules are responsive to individual children’s needs.
Infants eating table food follow the program’s snack and meal schedule, while younger infants eat at appropriate intervals based on their indicators to staff that they are hungry. Developmental activities including sensory, large motor (both indoors and outdoors), and small motor activities happen throughout the day as children are interested. Routines, such as diapering, eating, and napping, occur throughout the day to meet each child’s unique schedule.
