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.
September 2023 News!
Welcome to a new school year and a new year of making new friends and memories. We are getting excited for the fall weather coming, along with changing and falling leaves. This month we will be saying goodbye to our two friends, Henry and Arthur, as they move up to Infant 2 to meet more friends to learn and grow and making more memories. On a happy note, we get to meet a new friend, Eberhardt, this month. We are all excited to meet our new little friend and be able to get to know him. This month we will be learning about camping, colors, alphabet, and apples. We will be working on individual goals which include tummy time, holding their own bottle, rolling over, and getting to know them. As the weather may start to get cooler please bring in a sweater for when we go on walks. Things we keep enjoying in our room are doing weekly art projects, daily pictures of us playing with friends, babbling, smiling, hanging out, and reaching our milestones by ourselves and with friends. As a friendly reminder, you may feel free to ask us any questions or concerns you may have either at drop off or pick up, or on Himama if you think of any questions throughout the day.
“Make it a September to remember.”
Ms. Allison and Ms. Jherikka
