The Infant classroom is a warm, nurturing, and learning-rich environment for children 6 weeks-old through approximately 12-15 months-old.
Each Infant classroom may accommodate 8 or 12 children (varies by location) with a ratio of 1 teacher to every 4 infants. To cultivate a strong bond and attachment, each infant is established with a consistent primary caregiver.
Individualized infant schedules, interactions and curriculum implementation are provided throughout each day. The Infant program incorporates a multitude of sensory, language, social, physical, and creative experiences aimed to support infants as they reach important developmental milestones. Children in the Infant program progress in their gross and fine motor development, as well as language, cognitive, and social development.
Daily Schedule Sample
In our infant rooms, primary caregivers follow the cues of each student to guide the daily schedule of the child. Working with parents to help make routines for naps, diapering, feedings and playtime. Our schedule provided is a working example of what older infants may begin to follow to help transition to our young toddler rooms. This schedule is a guide but not exact.
