Infant Room

The infants and toddlers classroom caters to children age 6 weeks – 18 months. Teachers are trained to work with children of varying ages in this classroom through certifications, workshops, seminars and on-site professional trainings. Weekly lesson plans are posted to showcase the activities and play based learning that children in this group obtain each day.

The infant classroom focuses on establishing bonds with consistent caregivers, developing early reading skills and ensuring that infants follow a schedule that is appropriate for them and that is consistent with their home schedule. While lesson plans are posted to make parents aware of what is being taught, we also provide a flexible schedule that allows children to receive the care that is most important on that specific day. These types of situations include teething, changes in sleeping patterns and changes in eating habits. We speak with the parents at drop off and learn of any changes to the child’s schedule or any physical changes that may affect the flow of the day. We listen to this information and adjust the child’s day so it is both productive and comfortable. Our infant room is designed with each specific child in mind. Activities are tailored to the needs of the specific age group your child falls in to. Infants learn numerous skills through early reading, sensory experiences and forming bonds with teachers as well as other peers in his or her age group.

Consistent

Teachers consistently work with the same children to ensure the child is comfortable at drop off as well as during the day. Infant teachers have a 1:3 ratio and no more then 6 infants are allowed in a space. By having several full-time staff members, we give children the consistent caregivers they need to blossom and grow in our center. Our teachers love this age group and enjoy seeing children learn new skills and hit developmental milestones. We want families to feel like our center is a home away from home!

Qualified

Teachers have the required trainings set forth by the MSDE Office of Childcare. Teachers also go above and beyond this requirement to include years of experience, certifications and continued trainings. We want our staff to develop close bonds with our infants to develop loving and trusting bonds. We work closely with families to ensure that each child is given exactly what they need.

Play Areas

Infants and toddlers have a private outdoor area that includes push walkers, slides and other appropriate toys. Infants also have an indoor classroom that caters to gross motor skills, self feeding, developing social interactions and using sensory experiences to promote growth across numerous areas. Our classroom features a separate kitchen/eating area, napping area and substantial free-play space.
