Curriculum Overview: 

  In order to create a successful teaching and learning environment for infants, our teachers facilitate various activities throughout the day based on individual development and needs. Our infants enjoy a language rich environment, walks, and enrichment activities such as tummy time. Tummy time is encouraged through books, songs and stimulating toys. In order to create a successful infant curriculum, we focus on the relationships that are developed between the children, the families, the caregivers, and the classroom environment. We identify four major building blocks to scaffold their development.

Building Block

  • Infants learn to trust

Classroom Environment

  • The classroom environment promotes development and supports social interaction between the infant and caregiver
  • Rugs, pillows and soft chairs create a safe learning environment
  • Sensor motor exploration is supported through the variety of colors, shapes, texture, smells, sounds, and manipulative materials found in the classroom
  • Classroom environments are set up to promote social interaction and build friendships

Family Connections

  • Teachers work with parents and family members to create an environment that supports the individual needs of their infant
  • Teachers keep the lines of communication open by speaking to parents throughout the day
