Infants (0-12 months)
At the earliest stages of life, your baby depends solely on adults in his or her life to meet every need. From the slightest coo and smile, to the cries and tantrums, your little one is communicating. Babies love to explore and by age 3 months, they begin to reach for and grasp items with intention.
As they rapidly grow, they begin to imitate others, especially caregivers, and these interactions provide amazing brain growth and development. Even the smallest of these little ones thrive on the touch, love, and communication given to them by the caregivers in their life. Their motor skills develop with help and soon they roll over, sit up, crawl, walk, and scoot around.
Our infant and toddler teachers realize these things and help promote your child's development in the classroom through:
Providing a nurturing environment that promotes secure attachments
Talking in a calm and relaxed voice about what they are doing with your child
Hugging, cuddling, and loving your little one
Meeting each need of your child
Close communication with the parent/guardian
Singing, reading and talking to your child throughout the day as an introdution to new words and sounds.
Exploration of age appropriate items, materials, and activities
Learning your child's daily patterns, cues, and cries to help meet your child's needs
Respecting the child's differences, family background, and diversity
Gentle guidance in acquiring social skills
Teaching manners and rules
Your infant requires a healthy, loving environment in order to thrive. We cultivate a strong teacher-child bond where your child will feel safe, as well as sensory based activities to stimulate growth and awareness. At age 1, your child will move to the toddler classroom.

I am 19 years old and have always loved kids. My mom is a teacher and I always helped her in her classroom. I love to be outside and go hiking, hunting, fishing, and swimming. I am going to school for psychology and I want to work with kids when I graduate.
I am a first year student at Weber State University, studying Elementary Education. I absolutely love working with children and it helps me prepare to become a teacher. I was born into a military family and move around a lot until my dad retired around 2008; my family still lives in Chile, where my dad works at the US Embassy. In my travels, I learned to speak some Mandarin and Spanish, and I look forward to traveling more, after finishing my degree.
