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

 

Infants Daily Schedule

  • 6:30 – 8:45 am: Arrival/Breakfast/Free Play

Children and parents are greeted by staff and share information related to the child. Children are offered breakfast upon arrival. Free play occurs based on each child’s individual needs.

  • 8:45 – 11:30 am: Morning Experiences

Choice of free play is based on each child’s individual needs. During, this time experiences may include: music, sensory, books, accessible cozy area, art, fine motor materials, gross motor materials, dramatic play, blocks, nature/science, and outdoor play. Children engage in interaction with both their peers and staff members. Social, emotional, cognitive, motor, and language development occur throughout these experiences. Meals/snack/naps are provided to children according to their needs.
