Infant Classroom Philosophy
A "Day in the Life" of Our Infant Classrooms
Babies enrolled in our centers are off to a strong start! A typical day in daycare for our infants is full of hugs, cuddles, giggles and discovery:
Rest assured that babies are regularly fed (both bottles and solid food) and changed throughout the day to provide the ultimate comfort and care. Every feeding and changing is recorded so parents can understand the events of the day and ask questions.
Growing bodies need time to rest and recuperate as they venture onwards along their growth journeys. Parents play an active role in developing nap schedules to maintain consistency between home and school.
Songs & Sign Language
To add dimension to the concept of literacy, our creative teachers engage in singing and sign language throughout the day to emphasize language with children. Sign language can help pre-verbal children more effectively communicate with providers.
Verbal mapping and activities around the spoken word aid children in the understanding of materials, conversations, and primary emotions. Childcare providers work with children daily to ensure they reach verbal milestones before advancing to our toddler classrooms.
As teachers read to children, literary breadth expands through aural, verbal and print awareness. Books can also help children explore new concepts at age-appropriate levels.
From tummy time to the pincer grip, activities around gross and fine motor skills help infants strengthen large and small group muscle coordination.
Infants are incredibly receptive to various stimuli across many levels including sight, touch, and sound. We also have infant buggies to safely take strolls outside in the fresh air.
As infants age, they begin to comprehend connections with adults and peers. Classroom activities seek to further enhance the foundation for these social-emotional skills.

Parents that choose a licensed Little Sprouts school find that a private daycare approach provides the resources required for a robust early learning experience to best prepare children for kindergarten, unmatched from that of home childcare or other child care options.
