Curriculum and Child Development:

The infant curriculum is based on meeting the individual needs of every child through individual and group experiences. Infant curriculum is a mix of care and education.

  • Infants learn through love and security.
  • Responsible and loving certified Teachers help infants develop a healthy relationship with people outside their families.
  • Eating is a social time for relaxed interaction between the infant and the teacher; as well as nursery friends.
  • Belly time for the young infant is a vital step toward crawling and exploring.
  • Independent feeding works on eye-hand coordination as well as fine motor development.
  • Encouraging independence with role models at meals.
