Our objective is to support your littlest ones through the early stages of their development, as well as provide them with individualized care and attention. The Redd School has developed its own curriculum for infants, designed to guide your child through each developmental stage, such as sitting up, crawling, walking, “talking”, as well as other engaging activities such as baby sign language, singing songs and opportunities for exploring their world.
At the Redd School we believe having an ‘open door’ policy is critical to the success of our Infant Program. We welcome and encourage visits from parents – especially breastfeeding mothers – and invite you to visit or share information about your child’s development or unique needs anytime.
Our Infant program provides a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for the littlest ones in our care. This specially designed setting, along with our caring teachers, will work cooperatively with you to nurture your baby through their early stages of development. We provide continuity of care between your home and our classrooms by partnering with parents and developing a strong understanding of each child’s individual needs.
Each day the teachers will give you detailed info about your child’s day. This info provide a daily record of your child’s growth and development, as well as a shared snapshot of your baby’s day.
Our teachers utilize the latest age-appropriate infant equipment and manipulative toys with your child throughout the day. Once your child is walking, teachers will take them out on the patio to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, weather permitting.
Our infant classrooms are set-up in a way that allows our care providers to offer your child the best care. Our infant room is equipped with refrigerators and microwaves for bottle preparation, sleeping areas with individual cribs, and cubbies to hold your little one's belongings.
Keeping your baby’s health & well-being in mind, toys & equipment are sanitized throughout the day and all our infant classrooms follow a strict “No Shoe” policy. Parents are asked to remove shoes to reduce the amount of dirt, salt and germs entering the classrooms.
All of our classrooms are also equipped with telephones and you are welcome to call at any time of the day to check in and see how your baby is doing or share information too lengthy or private to share during drop-off times.
In this classroom we participate in the most relevant physical changes in a child’s life. Babies begin laying on their backs, to rolling and laying on their tummies, then they sit up, crawl, stand on two feet by holding onto someone or something, to finally taking their first steps. We strive to create and maintain a nurturing environment equipped with the proper facilities these special milestones deserve.
