INFANTS - SPROUTS
Throughout the day we practice on reaching, grasping, rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, walking, climbing, throwing, catching, kicking, cooing, giggling, and talking: which ever developmental stage your child happens to be in at the time. Infants and toddlers learn through play by music, dance, singing, rhymes, books, numbers, shapes, colors, the alphabet, stacking blocks, puppets, and many toys. We give each child individual attention. Whenever we have a free minute we talk with the children one-on-one, play hand games and make funny faces. We also give lots of positive attention when we are changing diapers and bottle-feeding. We teach children how to play independently and with their classmates. Every child has free time to choose what they want to play with, move around, and mingle with their classmates. The children will be involved in weekly sensory activities, book readings, art activities, etc
Around the time infants turn 1-year, a daily routine will be introduced as the children are eased into a single nap time and learn to sleep on cots/mats. They will begin developing their independent skills such as learning to use an open top cup, eating with utensils, and practicing table manners. The children will begin developing more fine and gross motor skills through planned activities. Our schedule is flexible and varies day to day based on each individual child’s needs and development according to their physical, social, emotional, and cognitive abilities.
