Infants (Birth to 13 months)

Our youngest classroom focuses on infants and children under 18 months and providing responsive care to your baby. Their classroom day and schedule is based on their needs as individuals. Our loving teachers will accommodate your infant's feeding schedule and follow their needs for sleeping and active times according to your baby's interest and activity level.  As babies grow into toddlers at differing ages, promotion from the infant class into the toddler class will be determined based on assessment of individual children and their developmental progress.  Generally children are ready to make this transition between 13 months and 16 months.

* Infants in care have a dedicated crib for their exclusive use while with our school.

* Infants have flexible times for sleeping, feeding, being held and snuggled, and tummy throughout each day.

* Our mobile infants are given freedom to explore their environment.

* Our babies are supported in playing together and building early friendships.

* As infants make the transitions to baby food, soft foods, and to table foods in turn, teachers will provide adequeate help and support for the child to not only be fed but have opportunities to learn self-feeding skills.
