Happy New Year!!
What an amazing year the infant room has had! Looking back, we are overwhelmed with love thinking about how much the babies have grown and developed. Some of our friends have moved up to the toddler classes, and we have also gained new friendships. Let’s make 2019 a year to remember!!
December was a very growth-oriented month for the infants! We focused on language skills and gross motor skills. One great way we did this was to dialogue with the infants about what we were doing, ask questions, read many books (our favorite being the “Biscuit” books), and sing songs throughout the day.
We had a great turn out for our Christmas party and visit with Santa 🎅🏻. We thank each and every parent for participating in these events.
For the month of January, we will be focusing on and adding to our lesson plans more gross motor activities and activities to build strong relationships between the infants, their caregivers, and their friends. Warm and loving interactions between you and your child develop your child's confidence, resilience, and communication. This prepares your child for things they’ll come across later in life, like working through problems, dealing with stress, and forming healthy relationships with other people in adolescence and adulthood.
