Day and Evening Care
Our new infant rooms create the perfect home away from for your baby. Our infant room is divided into two separate areas. Newborns have their own special area, keeping them warm, cozy and safe.
All babies have the everyday security of their own crib, fresh sheets and blankets provided by the Center. Once enrolled, they are assigned their individual caretaker, giving them a chance to bond with our staff. Sleeping infants are constantly monitored. Cribs are used only for sleeping.
The ratio of staff to infants is carefully monitored to stay below the State minimum. Diapers are changed every 2 hours, more often if needed, and feedings are on demand, keeping your baby happy and comfortable. Babies are cuddled and rocked. A cuddled baby is a happy baby!! You will receive a daily written summary of your baby, so you know how much they slept, ate, and when diapers were changed.
There are lots of opportunities for spontaneous and fun filled learning experiences as your baby grows and develops. Our babies love playing ball, chasing bubbles, dabbling in finger paint (really pudding!), reading stories in a comfy lap, singing songs and moving to the music. When weather permits they enjoy the fresh air and sunshine in a big, 6 seat stroller.
Be sure to stop in and visit - you will be impressed!
Day and Evening Care
Terrific toddlers!! Active, busy, curious and very independent!
Our toddler program is divided into two classrooms, separated by age and ability. This makes it much easier to meet their rapidly changing needs. As your child begins in the toddler room they will enjoy many exciting activities. They love reading stories, singing songs, and moving to the music.
There is a lot of messy play - painting, sand and water play, both indoors and out when weather permits. They begin relating to their world, playing "Mommy" and "Daddy" and taking care of their "babies", working puzzles, building with big blocks, and scribbling pictures for your refrigerator.
Toddlers are active, so they are given times to play on the big, soft mat and share an indoor climber. There are lots of room for running, tumbling, dancing and games. When weather permits they enjoy our playground, complete with a play set. They love the big, yellow slide!
Their schedules include lots of busy time but also allow time for quiet activities. Naptime is from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. each afternoon. Lesson plans are posted outside each classroom so you can see what the children are learning. When ready, we will work with you to encourage potty training. We will follow your lead in this big step towards growing up.
