8 weeks - 15 months
The infant program provides a safe and nurturing environment. Caregivers present infants with a sense of trust by meeting their needs and engaging in positive and loving social interactions. They have been learning by seeing, tasting, touching, smelling, and listening during sensory exploration experiences!
This month, we explored colors through streamers that we decorated areas with. We strategically placed the streamers in the classroom to promote and assist the children with their gross motor skills and get their bodies moving. For some, this activity was great to get them into a standing position either on their own or with assistance, and at the same time it promoted sensory exploration through textures as well as allowing us a simple way to review and identify our colors and build our Math development.
