WELCOME TO TADPOLE CREEK!
Children in the Infant Room are between 6 weeks and 16 months.
Our child-teacher ratio is one teacher for every three/four infants.
No shortage of snuggles here! We hold, love, rock and nurture. We get on the floor and interact on their level. We encourage sitting, crawling, vocalizing, talking, walking and much, much fun.
We like to laugh, smile, sing and get goofy. Your child’s individual schedule will be honored. He’ll eat when he’s hungry, sleep when he’s tired, play and play and play some more. She’ll do art, deliberately explore textures and smells and get lots of love and encouragement along the way.
Your baby’s day could include:
Art: painting with sponges, feathers, fingers and more
Reading books: listening to stories, pointing at pictures and discovering favorites
Exploring textures: discovering objects that are bumpy, smooth, slippery and squishy
Movement: support and encouragement with tummy-time, rolling over, crawling and walking
Sign language: helping to communicate needs
Play: being silly is an important part of each day
Music: singing, listening, swaying and dancing
Outside time (weather permitting): stroller walks in the neighborhood and playground time
Meals: Bottle to cup, freshly made purees to finger foods
