C0: Storybook Corner (Infants)

Welcome to our Young Infants Caterpillar class! 
This class is our young infant room for infant's 6 weeks to around 8 months. Our teachers in this class are dedicated to providing high quality infant care by providing a sanitary and welcoming environment and assisting the infants with learning vital early skills such as vocal play, muscle development & tone, care giver trust, and engagement with their environment. Our teachers work hard to ensure that families are updated quickly and that families feel comfortable and secure with bringing their children to childcare. Our infant teachers are amazingly caring individuals who love our students and the mission of our program.
Lesson Plans
Each week, lead teachers will plan age appropriate lesson plans for their classroom. In addition to our school year and summer themes and curriculum, we also use Indiana Early Learning Foundations to ensure that we hit sufficient learning targets for each foundation and age group. Lesson  Below is a sample of our weekly lesson plan for young infants.
