Teacher to Student Ratio
6 weeks – 12 months
Our infant classrooms feature large, open floor space with colorful play mats for tummy time, crawling, and exploration. Each baby receives a personal crib outfitted with comfy sheets washed daily. Cribs are safely disinfected at the end of each day. Our teachers sanitize toys and the diapering stations after each use to ensure cleanliness and the reduction of germs. We strategically placed our diapering station facing outward so teachers’ backs are never to the kids; even during diaper changes, our babies are adequately supervised. When parents or any staff member enter the infant suites, shoes must be removed or disposable booties must be used to reduce outside germs. In addition, each adult must sanitize their hands upon entering the room using our hand foam located at the front door.
We offer two infant classrooms to address the developmental age differences of growing babies. We maintain a 1:4 teacher-infant ratio in both classes. Our Brilliant Babies A classroom accommodates infants ages 6 weeks – 6 months while our Brilliant Babies B offers care for mobile infants ages 6 months – 12 months. We limit the class size to 8 infants. Within a small class environment, our teachers establish a loving and nurturing bond with each baby. Lots of hugs, tickles, and giggles are standard in our infant suites.
We ensure our Brilliant Babies receive nurturing, personalized care, combined with engaging learning activities. While in our care, children are stimulated through music, exercise, outdoor blanket time, facial and verbal mimicking as well as lots of hugs and tickles. Our little ones will communicate with us using sign language which is incorporated daily in infant-teacher dialogue. Flashcards, puppets, and singing are also incorporated to enhance language development. Diapering and feeding time is not quiet time for us. Teachers use this time to engage in conversation with each baby. What a great opportunity to help strengthen their communication skills. Also, throughout the day, our highly trained teachers provide 7-10 minute rotations allowing each infant one-on-one time with the teacher at the Rocking Chair station. During this time, the teacher sings lullabies, smiles, and uses oral language to express love, warmth and communication. Other rotations include limited play in interactive bouncers, multiple opportunities for tummy time, play, and exploration with manipulatives and toys. Special arts and crafts activities are completed at least twice per month. At the end of each day, parents receive a daily Infant Gram highlighting diaper changes, feeding and nap times, and special moments captured throughout the day.
A parental daily report is given to update each family on meal and nap times, toilet training and all activities accomplished each day.
