Infants

  
Infants need a safe, secure "home away from home" where they can be nurtured and loved to stimulate their growth and development. Our Turtle Island room is a creative environment where each child may develop at their own pace. Our dedicated staff will work with you and your child to make a smooth transition from your home to our center. We are committed to creating a strong bond with your child to ensure his or her best start in life. We understand that the first five years of a child's life are an amazing time of growth and learning that serves as the foundation for future development. Our program emphasizes the importance of positive, supportive interactions between the teacher and your baby. Our teachers will sing, read and talk with your child throughout the day. Your infant will have ample space to move, play and explore with confidence, guidance and encouragement from his or her teacher.

  • Singing
  • Naming objects
  • Engaging in conversation
  • Exploring books
  • Sign Language

Math
It may seem surprising, mathematical concepts are indeed a part of an infant's early learning- from staring at the shapes of a toy, to exploring all of the space around them. Our curriculum provides appropriate materials and activities that promote the development of early math understanding. Some of the things your infant will have the opportunity to learn include:
  • Recognizing words that describe positions
  • Becoming aware of space and variations in it
  • Understanding quanity concepts
  • Repeating an action to make the same thing happen again
  • Making choices from a group of items

Science to infants is not found in elaborate experiments, but rather in real world and everyday moments as they move through their environment, manipulate objects, and explore with all of their senses. Our infant teachers help curious infants begin the process of discovery by:
  • Providing a sensory-rich enviornment
  • Encourage exploration in a safe way
  • Exploring volume by filling and dumping buckets filled with soft toys
  • Playing peek-a-boo
  • Exploring nature in safe, outdoor environments

  • Painting with brushes, sponges and fingers
  • Using rattles and musical instuments
  • Dancing and moving to beats, music and tempos
  • Playing with puppets and dolls
  • Reading vivid picture books
