Infants 6 Weeks to 9 Months
Our Goal in The Nest for Infants
We strive to provide our infants with the most supportive, loving, nurturing and caring environment available. We not only provide TLC from 6:45 am to 6:15 pm, but we incorporate a stimulation program in our day to help our infants reach their growth and development milestones on time, if not early.
Infant Teacher Ratio
We offer teacher to child ratio of 1:3, which is one of the LOWEST CHILD TO TEACHER RATIOS in the area. We have many veteran employees in our room.
Parent Involvement in the Nest
We encourage parents to visit often and call throughout the day to check in on their precious little angels. We can’t wait for you and your family to come join us and begin the journey of learning and daily fun!
Infants 8 Months – 14 Months
Our Goal in The Outback for Infants
During this time the younger infant begins to become an individual and start to achieve some major milestones. With this in mind, some goals that are reached may include, but are not limited to, walking alone, drinking from a cup, going to one nap during the daytime and eating more solid foods opposed to strained baby foods. One of our primary goals is to constantly monitor these developments as they grow and are considered when moving to the next level.
The Outback Atmosphere
The class works together to promote team concepts and continuity of care. The infant care providers who work with this age group are fully trained and knowledgeable regarding the growth and development of infants and being able to perform all child care skills in a safe and proficient manner.
Our Approach to Child Care for Older Infants
On a daily basis a curriculum based stimulation program was designed and is followed thoroughly to meet the developmental needs of the infant. Our introduction to art includes the 5 senses which are considered while lesson plans are being implemented. We also focus on fitness in the classroom through a 30 minute weekly exercise routine which has been studied to promote physical awareness. Our ultimate goal is to allow for your child to grow and develop at his/her own pace. We transition infants according to readiness and mobility which will provide guidance for the next level of developmental opportunities.
The Transition Room
Infants 12 Months – 18 Months
Our Goal in the Transition Room for Infants
While in this room your child will continue to improve and refine their gross motor skills such as walking, running, climbing stairs and more. This is a challenging time for children as they are beginning to learn to speak. They can get frustrated when they can’t communicate, therefore we encourage them to use their words and gain new words like please, thank you, and nice manners.
The Transition Room Atmosphere
We have circle time everyday with our room and they begin to learn to play together and share toys with their friends. They learn to share and have nice touches. We play lots of games, sing and dance, encourage sharing, waiting your turn and playing together. We also begin to help them learn about center time. We hope you will come visit us soon and see just how much fun we have everyday!! Smile!!
