OUR

Programs

Our programs are comprehensive, child-focused, and based on implementation of Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards.

All infants are cared for according to his/her schedule and needs. There is interaction with each child according to age and interests. Non-mobile infants are held, and “talked to” while being feed or changed. Staff sing, tell nursery rhymes, and help with large and small motor movement by moving arms and legs. Teachers and staff also help with simple problem solving (stacking things, nesting things). Sign language is also part of the daily activities with infants. Infants who learn baby sign language also are thought to gain psychological benefits, such as improved confidence and self-esteem. Feelings of anger due to an inability to communicate may not occur as often.

Diapers are checked and recorded every two hours or as needed. Daily reports are filled out for parents. Each report documents the following: feeding (i.e. time of bottle or other meals and what was served), diaper changes (i.e., bowel movement, wet etc.), time of nap, and activities for the day.

At this age, the child is more on a schedule: breakfast, lunch, snacks, naps, making choices. The child naps on a cot. The child is expected and encouraged to drink out of a cup. The child plays with toys that promote the development of fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, and cognitive skills such as blocks, puzzles, and toys that can be stacked. During circle/meeting time, there books are read and songs are sang or played to help language and literacy development. Sign language is also part of the daily activities with toddlers.

The following are reviewed weekly activities, most are reviewed daily, which support language and literacy development: letters, shapes, colors, and numbers; writing is introduced.
