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

  • Monthly garden and food sustainability class with Ms. Kathy from Fare Table

 

Our infant room encourages your child's natural curiosity about the world.
