INFANT care room
The infant stage is marked most radically with the infant’s need to develop as unique
individuals with behaviors and growth changes ever present. Our infants have their
own classroom and specially trained staff who give our babies lots of attention and
love.  We keep a low ratio of infants to caregivers and offer lots of verbal and physical
interaction between kids and our caregivers. We have age-appropriate toys as well as
books. Our daily activities include lots of singing, talking, reading, and dancing as well
as on-the-floor playtime activities.

We have bouncers, swings, activity mats, and rocking chairs so that each baby gets
lots of physical contact and individual attention. The infant program provides for the
following goals:

*To adhere to the infants schedule and needs.
*To meet each child’s physical needs completely
*To provide opportunities for exploring, learning and social interaction through a
good variety of daily activities
*To prepare activities to stimulate the senses recognizing that infants learn through the
use of their eyes, ears, fingers, sense of taste and smell

*To provide a consistency between Day Care and Home Care practices that will be most
beneficial to the infant and will offer the parents an opportunity to influence the kind
of care that their child receives
