At Apple Tree Learning Centers our infant program is designed to serve children ages 7 weeks through 14-15 months of age. As this is probably a child’s first extended experience away from home, every effort is made to make the transition a comfortable and happy one for both child and parent(s). We strive to create routines similar to ones at home, especially feeding and napping times. Our program offers a separate sleeping room to ensure a quiet napping environment.
This age is a time of great discovery and exploration. In support of the developmental milestones of this age group, we provide learning tools specifically designed for infants, and other materials to stimulate curiosity. We combine a variety of materials with opportunities to listen to stories, poetry and music, which make the infant center a warm and fun-loving environment. Weather permitting we also explore the outdoor environment by spending time on the recreation path, strolling, sledding and our playground every day, which is designed to meet the developmental needs of this age group.
