Babies are the Heartbeat of Our Program
The infant program at PromiseLand Learning Center is our heartbeat. Experienced, loving teachers create a warm and happy place for babies to grow and thrive. Respect, responsiveness and reciprocity build the base for excellent care we provide for infants.
It’s reciprocal. When you bring your baby in the morning we want to hear from you and at departure time you receive a daily report about their day.
Teachers work together with parents to make sure our infant room is an extension of the great care you provide at home.
Children learn best when they are given a chance to freely play.
Our role is to provide our infants with an environment that supports play, encourage their interactions and support problem solving.
Safety is key, so exploring, discovering and learning can come naturally.
Our infant rooms are designed to encourage safety interactions and to support play.
Caregivers move around providing them the little nudge they need to be confident and experiment in a caring loving way.
Young infants (6 weeks to about 7 months old) and mobile infants (7-12 months old) share different spaces allowing crawlers to move freely and the youngsters to have their “tummy time” with no interruption.
Our infant curriculum reflects the best Developmentally appropriate and practices in a perfect well-designed and thoughtful environment where children are individually cared for by capable and dedicated teachers.
The daily schedule evolves around each child’s needs and lesson plans are designed individually according to their age and developmental stage.
Infants have the opportunity to interact with each other and teachers in both rooms so transitions are made naturally and peacefully from Young to Mobile infant rooms.
