INFANT CARE PROGRAM

We use the online system – Himama – to electronically track daily information about your baby's feedings, diapering, sleeping, moods, activities, photos, and more!  This information is accessible from your computer or through a Smartphone or iPad application.  You'll have peace of mind while you watch what your baby is doing while in our care.

Age Range: Infants that are 6 weeks of age through 16 months.

Small Student/Teacher Ratio: 4:1


Toys and Activities: Our teachers will stimulate your baby through a variety of activities that promote learning such as reading stories, singing songs, playing games, exploring musical instruments, going for walks, crawling on climbers in our classroom and in our indoor gym, etc.

Social Development: Your baby will build friendships with classmates that will continue for years to come as they advance to the toddler and preschool programs with other students.  Teachers promote positive relationships with other children consistently by talking about what children are doing, providing opportunities to play in small groups, and by using names and other identifying characteristics to promote comfort and familiarity with others.  We have multiple toys to encourage parallel play instead of expecting infants to always take turns.  We talk about the emotions of other children and provide opportunities for imitation during songs and other play.

Language Development: A child’s vocabulary doubles at this time in their life. Toddlers spend a lot of time modeling teachers’ verbal communications. The teacher will help your child find the correct words when identifying items or when trying to communicate their feelings. They also model each other. Through the use of books, puppets, finger plays, and songs the children will hear and imitate many sounds and words. The teachers encourage the children to use words to communicate their needs and concerns. We also incorporate sign language into your toddler’s language development.

Reading: Books are a huge part of a toddler’s day. Reading stories and activities including flannel boards, finger plays, and puppets help to develop reading. The toddler is starting to learn many concept words. They are also beginning to follow two-step directions.

 

Math: Matching colors, recognizing colors, and beginning to identify colors are all part of an introduction to math. They will begin to match and recognize shapes, count from 1-10, compare items that are the same and different, and sequence items. Simple puzzles, peg boards, patterns, sorting toys, and blocks will all be introduced to help reinforce these early math concepts.

Age Range: Preschool students that are 33 months of age to 5 years.

Language Development: The vocabulary of your preschooler continues to grow with new experiences. Your son or daughter will continue to perfect speaking in full sentences and using words more correctly in context. The articulation of many beginning sounds is still developing.

Reading: Reading stories and activities including flannel boards, finger plays, and rhyming all help to foster reading skills. Your preschooler will be introduced to tape stories, sequencing, comparing things that are same and different, opposites, listening for patterns, understanding concept words such as over and under, and music. He or she will begin doing more teacher directed art projects and following three-step directions.

 

Math: Matching colors, recognizing colors, and identifying colors are all part of your preschooler’s abilities. Your child will become competent at matching and recognizing shapes. He or she will begin counting from 1-30 (and beyond) and comparing things that are the same and different. Other things that help foster math skills include working with puzzles, creating patterns on peg boards, sorting and sequencing objects, building with blocks, and comparing sizes and shapes. Your preschooler will also begin to analyze things such as the mass of an object and whether things will sink or float.

Social Development: Socially, your preschooler is learning to treat others as friends, control impulsive behaviors, take turns, learn the concept of respect, use good manners, be independent in toileting skills, share with others, and use their own words to solve conflicts.
