Services

Infants

Each infant will be on their own schedule, depending on the infant's needs and their parent's desires. Parents fill out a schedule to be followed by the staff. Parents provide all food, bottles (taken home daily and washed), diapers and wipes for their infants, with everything being labeled. Infants must keep a change of clothing on hand at all times.

 

 

Infants will be provided with an environment that stimulates small and large muscle coordination, the senses, creative expression and socialization.

 

Parents will receive daily reports with the child's sleeping patterns, food consumption, urination and bowel movements, as well as photos of the fun their child is having throughout the day using the Tadpoles parent communication app.

Toddlers

Our toddler room's daily schedules are made to allow plenty of time to focus on creative art, sensory experiences, fine motor and gross motor development, and language development. The learning plans offer ideas for creative art and sensory experiences to explore through discovery; the fine motor area focuses on grasping and eye/hand coordination, the gross motor area focuses on using large muscle development, and the language area focuses on using words to express needs. An important emphasis for this age is emotional development, which includes helping children feel good about themselves and their abilities.

Older toddlers are eager and enthusiastic learners and are nurtured and challenged through group play and language development. The learning schedule for this classroom offers activities in the areas of creative art, nature, fine motor, physical fitness and songs. The important emphasis for children of this age is socialization: such as sharing and taking turns, and cooperation in a group environment. Parents will receive daily notes and photos about their children's day throughout the Tadpoles parent communication app.
