The Infant Room maintains a ratio of 1 teacher to 3 babies. Infants who enter the Infant Room will react differently for a variety of reasons.
Age is a major factor which determines how well a baby will cope with entering group care and separation from the parent. We will talk to you about what you might expect and offer some suggestions for coping with the situation.
In the Infant Room, the teacher’s program for each baby is developed on an individual basis every two weeks. The programs are displayed on the wall along with comments from the teachers. Please read this valuable information and share with us your child’s achievements at home.
We plan a variety of experiences for the infants which encourage the development of the whole child; language and cognition, motor development and social and emotional growth.
In order to assist the children in their development we offer a wide variety of toys and experiences. As well, we make good use of many routines associated with infant and toddler care.
Sensory exploratory are very important to children of this age in order to help them learn about their world. Babies love to paint with pudding, pour cornmeal and oatmeal and participate in water play.
