Food - Infants are on their own schedule and are given bottles, food and take naps based on the individual. Most are on a 2-3 hr feeding schedule so when your Little Angel is hunger he/she is fed or when he/she is tired they sleep.
Play - Through out the day the teachers facilitate opportunites for each child (depending on developmental level) to take part in tummy time/floor time, excerise mates, excersaucers, jumpers and story time. They are given a variety of developmentally appropriate toys to entertain and encourage exploration. Music is also used to sooth and entertain our little ones. Senses are explored with developmentally appropriate activities.
Changes - Each child is changed every two hours or when otherwise visible soiled.
