Infant and Toddler Program
The infant and toddler program provides a warm, nurturing atmosphere in which caregivers play and talk with children as they care for their needs. Infants and toddlers are cared for in a manner that will assist them in developing trust in their surroundings and their caregivers. They will have stable and consistent routines. Planning for these age groups includes many sensory, creative, dramatic, gross motor, discovery, and self-help activities.
“Play builds the kind of free-and-easy, try-it-out, do-it-yourself character that our future needs.” ~ James L. Hymes Jr
For preschool children, daily activities are planned around units of study, which are interesting and meaningful to young children. A balanced schedule provides experiences in group and individual settings. Stories, music, language experiences, and discussion of unit studies take place in groups. Individually, children choose learning center activities in which they can work and play in pairs, in small groups or alone.
