The Youngest Learners: Infants
"A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on."
The strength of our infant and toddler programs lies in the relationships we foster with families. Recognizing parents as the first and primary teacher in their child’s life we strive to partner with you to foster optimal development, through consistent relationships and predictable experiences.
Our infant program follows the natural rhythm of your baby’s day. It is filled with plenty of hugs, smiles, time and attention so vital to the healthy emotional growth of your little one. Our daily programs include lots of language, signing, exploration, sensory play, baby games, tummy time, infant massage, music and movement and times for gathering and settling. We care for the happiest babies on earth!
Who is an infant?
- An infant is one of the youngest children in our school. They range in age from six weeks old to about 17 months old. From 17 months on, the children are usually developmentally advanced beyond the other Teddies and ready to move on to learn new things.There are instances where we will move a child as young as 15 months at the parents request or when the child is developmentally advanced.
