6 WEEKS-12 MONTHS

Infants Classroom

We believe that infants develop and thrive best when they are given a nurturing, loving, and responsive environment. One that supports a variety of learning opportunities where children are free to explore. Infants have not yet mastered their commuication skills making it important for us to ensure a program that develops trust, security, and attachment. We emphasize that development and an infant’s emerging physical, sensory-motor, perceptual, cognitive, language and social-emotional skills.

Sample Schedule for the Day of an Infant

Daily schedules are developed with the following in mind:

  • Matching the age and abilities of the children.
  • Outdoor time, both structured and unstructured, every day.
  • At least two large blocks of time for child-directed learning.

And include:

  • Morning and Afternoon Group Time
  • Small-Group Activities
  • Morning and afternoon child-directed learning in learning centers
  • Outdoor play and activities
  • Snack and meals
  • Rest time

 

Each day is packed with purposeful educational playing activities structured around the six main development areas.
