Children ages six weeks to eighteen months are cared for in the infant rooms. Each infant’s day is planned around his or her personal rhythms and routines. Parents are encouraged to speak to the caregiver daily so the staff will understand each infant’s current needs. A log of the child’s day is given to parents/guardians at the end of each day. It includes information on what the child ate, time and length of naps, diaper changes, and information about the child’s activities and moods.
Trust, attachment, exploration of the senses, language, and mobility are fostered throughout the day. The selection of materials in each infant room takes into account the child’s total development as well as the range of ages within the infant room.
