The Infant Program is an individualized program that serves the developmental and nurturing needs of infants from 6 weeks to 18 months. Infant Care at Little Flower works very closely with family routines with each infant having his/her own individual schedule and care plan.
How do infants learn at Little Flower?
Infants learn by experiencing the environment through their senses.
Non-mobile infants absorb and organize a great deal of information about the world around them. Teachers carry non-mobile infants around the environment to show them pictures, other children, special events and nature; and they name everything and repeat the words.
Mobile infants and toddlers are guided to explore their surroundings and use the learning materials available. They also repeat the names of the materials and equipment.
How do adults contribute to infant learning at Little Flower?
Adults play a vital socialization role with infants and bond with them using a warm and positive manner to help them develop a sense of trust in the world and a sense of competence. These positive interactions are critical to the formation of the child’s self-esteem as well as his/her cognitive and physical development. Important self-help skills are being acquired during these early years, such as feeding.
Little Flower is fully licensed for the care of infants, and the presence of God is shown to our students through the love and dedication of the caretakers.
