Our nursery programs are for babies from 6 weeks of age through approximately 18 months. We are very unique from other child care centers in that we have four separate Nursery classrooms where children are divided based on age and developmental milestones. As a result, the age-range in each classroom is generally no more than six months.
Each nursery room is equipped with a variety of age appropriate soft play toys, climbing structures, swings and other educational materials. Using these resources, our teachers have developed a variety of age-appropriate activities to develop sensory and motor skill development.
Our Nursery classes are all about learning and skill development. Our teachers devise age/skill appropriate activities and experiences based on developmental checklists and our center wide weekly theme. Sensory and motor skill experiences play a large role in learning in this age group. Through play we encourage skill development and independence in eating and walking as we guide your infant to their toddler years.
We provide stimulating, simple floor based activities as children learn to lift and turn their head, roll over, sit up and crawl. Once crawling, they are challenged by a variety of soft play structures, soft balls and toys, and tools to assist with taking the first steps towards walking.
Once children are able to sit up at the feeding table their curiosity is constantly challenged by sensory activities such as shaving cream, musical puzzles, and soft books. In addition, the teachers are constantly singing and clapping to help develop all of the age appropriate listening and sensory challenges. We encourage the children to develop independence in eating and walking as they transition into our toddler program.
The older infant classrooms have their own, artificial grass covered playground with soft toys, balls and riding toys to help with gross motor skill development.
The infant and toddler classrooms also have the chance to play in our atrium play center that has soft play toys, sensory tables, building blocks and riding toys.
