3 MONTHS to 3 YEARS
INFANTS Room - 3 to 12-14 months [1 adult to 4 children]
In the Infant Room, we know that young infants need security most of all, and thrive in their close relationships with parents and caregivers. Maria Cuellar (Infant-Toddler Certificate) is the consistent caregiver in the Infant Room, with student assistants as needed. They provide an enriching and stimulating environment for our youngest learners who range in age from three to thirteen/fourteen months. They are expert at easing that first transition from home to childcare--both for the child and the parent-–allowing at least a month for adjustment to the new environment. A great deal of the day is consumed with routine activities such as bottles, diapers, and sleep, guided by input from the family as to the individual needs of each child. Waking hours are filled with floor activities, sensory experiences, creative exploration and much more to help each infant become more aware of his/her surroundings.
When our infants become mobile, we begin to transition them into the classroom with mobile infants/toddlers as they become more curious and on the move!
