Infants and Wobblers

 

Infants and Wobblers (6 Weeks – 18 Months)

In our Infant and Wobbler rooms we care for and nurture infants as they develop motor skills and discover the world around them. Our Infant and Wobbler programs provide a warm, welcoming environment where your little one can grow from a bundle of joy to a bundle of curiosity. Our teachers read, sing, and teach sign language to your child daily.

Communication is crucial at this stage of development. Parents will receive daily logs that document diaper changes, feeding times, amounts fed, nap times, and other activities in which their Infant or Wobbler participated.

Some Developmental Milestones Include:

  • Social interaction with adults
  • Becoming aware of one’s self
  • Development of basic motor skills
