Infants are just beginning to experience the world around them. Our infants will be loved, cuddled, talked to, played with, and given a safe, secure environment to explore. Each child under 12 months will have his/her own crib and be carefully supervised. Appropriate health and hygiene procedures will be followed. We will work with you to individualize your baby’s eating and sleeping schedule, and our caregivers will give you real time updates throughout the day.
Curriculum: Connecting with Infants
Connecting with Infants is a comprehensive curriculum for infants from birth through eighteen months that encourages caregivers to plan activities for individual children based on the child’s current development. The curriculum was developed through a contract with the Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Education.
Toddlers are developing rapidly in all areas. They are on the move and beginning to show independence, problem-solving skills, and an understanding of language. These children are given opportunities to explore and learn through self-directed and teacher-directed indoor and outdoor activities. They are guided in building loving relationships with other children and adults and encouraged to develop self-help skills such as eating habits, toilet training, and washing their own hands.
Curriculum: Adventures for Toddlers
Adventures for Toddlers, a comprehensive curriculum for children from eighteen through thirty-six months, has been developed and revised through contracts with the Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Education. Programs using the Adventures for Toddlers curriculum can easily transition into the Adventures in Learning curriculum for children from three through five. This curriculum allows the teachers to break down different areas, such as social/emotional, fine motor, and gross motor skills, to each individual child’s needs.
Preschoolers are independent and creative. They are masters of their bodies and have extensive vocabularies. These children are given opportunities to enhance their creativity and curiosity through teacher and child-directed hands-on indoor and outdoor activities. These activities will center on physical, cognitive, language, social, and emotional development to help them successfully start kindergarten.
