Low Student to Teacher Ratio
In our hope to give each infant individualized, personal care, we keep our ratios low.
Safe, Responsive, and Interactive Environment
Our infant center welcomes and values each child’s developmental phase. We provide an environment where teachers, children, and families are encouraged to interact and develop relationships. We provide daily communication logs to keep track of the child’s activities during the day. In addition, we have closed-circuit cameras recording at all times.
Fun, Engaging, and Appropriate Activities
Our curriculum offers hands-on, appropriate, and relevant activities that encompass the cognitive, language, physical, and social-emotional development of every child. Sensory exploration, finger plays, puppetry, nursery rhymes, reading books, and nature walks are just some of the daily activities we provide our infants.
Warm, Experienced, and Qualified Teachers
Our teachers assure every family the best care possible for their child. We conduct onsite screenings and regularly assess each infant’s growth and development.
Monthly Nurse Visits
Our school nurse performs monthly visits to check on the healthy practices and habits we should be aware of. The nurse gives additional in-service sessions about different health topics necessary for the infant staff to learn.
Nutritious table food is cooked on site.
Infant Creative Curriculum
The first step in providing the appropriate support for the learning process is to understand the needs and personalities of the children. Students learn best in an environment in which they feel secure; this is especially true for young children who get easily frightened by the unknown.
It is our job as educators to create a responsive environment where the child feels welcome and safe to move around, play, and be him/her/themselves. Within the Creative Curriculum, not only does the teacher serve as a role model but also a moderator for student interaction.
The Creative Curriculum places an emphasis on teachers working with parents and families for the child’s benefit. By sharing accomplishments and milestones with parents daily, we hope that parents can continue to encourage their children outside the classroom.
