Infants & Toddlers

Infants & Toddlers

Here at Academy, we recognize that your child’s earliest years can be the most pivotal. As such, we have created a thorough infant/toddler curriculum designed to meet the developmental needs of every single child in our care. Our teachers strive to meet target goals in each of our five key focus areas: fine motor, gross motor, social-emotional, cognitive/linguistic, and sensory/art exploration. Our babies will engage in activities on a daily basis that meet one (or more!) of these criteria. Some of our favorite activities include reading books, painting, singing songs, and playing with puppets together. However, the learning doesn’t stop there! Our teachers also implement sign language in their day-to-day interactions with students in order to foster greater communication skills. You will find the sign of the week posted in classrooms and on the front door.

Any good infant/toddler curriculum begins with an intentional, positive classroom environment. Take a walk through one of our baby rooms and you’ll notice mirrors, padded climbers, crawling areas, dramatic play equipment, puppets, books, sensory games, and much more. We encourage our students to track objects, imitate sounds, uncover hidden toys, reach out to grasp objects, balance, and stand. 

Feel free to share your developmental goals for your child with our infant/toddler staff, and they will ensure that your child makes steady progress while in our care. As always, the health and safety of your precious babies is always our number one priority!
