Our nursery has been designed to create a warm and loving atmosphere for your infant. The classroom is limited to six infants with two teachers, one being our school nurse to provide a healthy learning environment.
Teachers keep track of their milestones and actively recognize what they need at each stage. The care-givers in our infant classrooms are the critical element of the infant program. Our registered nurse is in each of our infant classrooms each day! Their comfort, guidance, language modeling, participation in play, and knowledge of child development are the children’s assurance of love and learning.
Our infant room is designed for stimulation and exploration where our little ones are encouraged to become unique individuals. To ensure consistency from home and school, families assist in developing their child’s daily schedule. Parents participation and visits are always welcome.
Each child enrolled in the Infant program will be assigned a primary caregiver upon enrollment. Primary caregivers are essential to forming positive relationships between the children and teachers. The primary caregiver assigned to each child is responsible to plan activities for each of the children in the care group based on each child’s individual needs. There are six primary goals that guide our interactions with infants:
- To learn about themselves (independence and self-concept)
- To learn about their feelings (emotions and expressing feelings)
- To learn about others (sharing, empathy)
- To learn about communicating (verbal and non-verbal)
- To learn about moving and doing (gross motor, fine motor, eye-hand coordination, & self-help)
- To acquire thinking skills (cognitive development)
