Infant Programming - 6 Weeks to 1-Year
"It's all of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives into the world. It's like you've met your reason to live."
~ Johnny Depp
The staff of Arts for Kids is both professional and caring. They will teach and care for your child using their experience and the information they receive from you. Each staff member has or will soon complete the required education to be a professional childcare provider in the State of Wisconsin.
Our committment to quality care begins with the partnership between our care givers and parents, which is especially important in providing the highest quality of care for infants.
Together, parents and care givers develop a daily schedule that meets the individual needs of the child. This open communication will be on-going during the child's time at the Center.
The Center realizes that very young children require an environment that is responsive to individual needs. Our loving care givers respond with kind words, warm smiles and gentle touches to assure infants they are safe, secure and special. Our infant classroom offers an array of bright , stimulating equipment alongside soothing, restful areas. Our infant room is a safe and secure place for infants to explore and learn as they spend their day with us. Each infant is on their own unique feeding, sleep and play schedules. Our nurturing infant program is designed just for them with their best interest at heart. Non mobile infants will be moved to various activities in the room to provide variety and enjoyment in their day.
Children under the age of 2 years old will have a notebook system for direct communication with their teacher(s). In this notebook the teacher will log the daily activities, feedings ad rest times of your child. Parents will be asked to list pertinent information that will ensure the individualized schedule of each child is up to date. To include, but not limited to, the last time the child ate,slept and was changed, as well as mood and sleeping patterns of the night before.

Happy New Year and Happy January! This new month is going to be a great start to a new year filled with new memories and new friends. To start off the New Year we have a new friend joining us. Her name is Gabrielle, we are so happy to meet her and have a new friend to make memories with and grow with. This month we will be learning about New Years, Ice, Snowman, Winter Animals and Snowflakes. Some of the goals we will be working on with the kids one on one and as a big group are; Getting to know one another, Standing along furniture, Rolling over, Crawling, Sitting up, and walking along furniture. We will also be enjoying one on one time with each infant, reading books, singing songs and having baby language conversations. As always feel free to ask me any questions or concerns you may have either at drop off, pick up, or on Himama if you think of anything throughout the day.
