Sitting Up. Crawling. Exploring.
This is an amazing time in your child’s life. Every day brings a new gift – a smile, a new word, a new tooth. At The Playhouse Academy, we attend to your infant’s every need and we listen carefully to you – the parent – so that your needs are met as well. The schedule is determined by your child, not by us. We encourage you to talk with your child’s teacher about a typical day in your house. Since an infant’s day is “on demand”, there’s no set schedule in our infant room.
Our curriculum addresses an infant’s growth and development by creating strong bonds and learning through play. An understanding of infant related milestones helps our teachers shape the day’s activities to best support your child’s development. We believe hands on, tactile activities best support your child’s growing mind. We try to incorporate your child’s ever growing curiosity of the world he or she is beginning to discover. Finger painting, coloring with extra larger crayons and markers, and an introduction to simple shapes and primary colors are a small part of our infant curriculum.
Every child is special and unique. The Playhouse Academy infant room understands that babies have a strong bond with their parents and fully expect separation issues. We want to work with you to make this hard transition to school a little bit easier for you and your little angel. We know that leaving your little one isn’t easy and we take to heart that you put your child’s care in our hands.
The changes you see throughout the year in your infant are wonderful and exciting. We work every day to prepare them for what’s ahead. When he or she leaves this class, the exciting toddler program will be ready to shape his or her continuously growing mind.
