Schedules for infants are used as a guide for the day. Infant classroom schedules are responsive to individual children’s needs. Infants who eat table foods follow a schedule, while younger infants eat at appropriate intervals based on their indicators to staff that they are hungry. Infants eating table food follow the program’s snack and meal schedule, while younger infants eat at appropriate intervals based on their indicators to staff that they are hungry.
Developmental activities including sensory, large motor (both indoors and outdoors), and small motor activities happen throughout the day as children are interested. Routines, such as diapering, eating, and napping, occur throughout the day to meet each child’s unique schedule.

Our activities are based on the following beliefs:

•Process is more important than product
•The creativity of each child must be encouraged
•All activities are also opportunities to help each child develop responsibility
•Assessments on all children are completed three times a year and discussed with parents
