Beginning at 6 Weeks
Our infant program provides a nurturing supportive and safe environment designed to become the building blocks for successful lifelong learning. The attentive and responsive care given daily will enable the caregivers to build upon the child’s strengths, needs and interests. Individual schedules, routines and experiences provide opportunities for the child to nurture curiosity, gain new skills and develop a sense of their world and foster their sense of competence.
Communicating with families, honoring parenting styles, values and cultures leads to a successful partnership in the quality care of their child.
Play is the instrument by which Progressive Learning’s curriculum is implemented using the following developmental domains:
- Social and emotional skills develop as the infants learn about themselves is reinforced through the relationships formed between the infant and caregivers.
- Physical development encourages movement. Toys, games, crawling through tunnels, balancing equipment, and safety mirrors encourage the development of control over large and small muscles.
- Language development integrates activities for listening, responding, and communicating. Books, conversation, storytelling, puppetry, imitating, and music encourages the infant to develop listening and responding skills.
- Cognitive development enables the infant to discover how everything works in their world. Abundant opportunities are provided through the use of educational materials, learning experiences, and sensory exploration to enhance their natural curiosity and problem solving.
