The beginning of wonderful Early Childhood starts in our infant room.
Our infants are cared for by friendly, enthusiastic, and responsive teachers in a calm, soothing, happy and natural environment. Their daily needs are addressed with smiles and frequent eye contact. Loving interaction between baby and teachers is given during diaper changes, feedings, rest time, and playtime.
Our Teachers make sure to engage with your baby by talking about what they are seeing and experiencing thus encouraging their vocabulary development. Songs are frequently sung, stories are read and soothing music is played during naps. There is plenty of snuggle time and babies are given plenty of individualized attention.
Families are kept up to date with a daily sheet that reports feeding times/amounts, diaper changes, nap times, and activities that occurred each day. The staff is responsive to each parent’s concerns and suggestions and baby’s achievements are joyfully shared.
Our room resembles a relaxing home atmosphere with cribs, age appropriate toys, bouncers, high chairs and a comfy rocking chair. Each child has their own cubby for personal items. There is adequate space for the staff to sit on the floor with baby during play. Your child’s happiness and comfort is our first priority as we provide you with a safe and secure Early Education program.
