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.

October 2021 News!

Infant I 

Hello Families & Happy October!

I want to start off by saying I can’t believe it’s October already! We had  a couple new friends join us in September including Jake, August and    Juniper! We said goodbye to Deontae, Cater O, Carter D & Sawyer as they moved up into Infant II!

During the month of October we have plans of exploring pumpkins inside & out with some awesome sensory activities!

In September our friend River learned to crawl! That’s awesome! Right now we are working on getting our new friends used to floor time  and learning how to roll over!  

Reminder to dress your kiddos warm as is cools down outside!

As always, feel free to message through HiMama or talk to us in person!

We’re excited to see everything our friends are going to learn this month!

Infant II

Hello October! Good-bye September. 

We had a great month as we welcomed 4 new friends. Carter, Deontae, Sawyer & Carter. We also welcomed our amazing teacher assistant, Ms.

Ashley. We are so happy she came back to us.

The weather is always a mystery. Once we get the kids on a new routine we want to try more to get out for walks. Please make sure your child has    a sweater at daycare for when weather is colder.

This month we will be learning about community helpers, leaves & fall, fire prevention & safety, pumpkins and lastly Halloween.

We will be doing lots of hand prints and reading stories that go with our weekly themes. Please stay healthy and enjoy the weather. Questions or  concerns? Feel free to message on HiMama, leave a note or ask in person.

Ms. Danielle & Mrs. Ashley
