C0: The Caterpillars (Young Infants)
Welcome to our Young Infants Caterpillar class!
This class is part of our infant and toddler suite for children 6 weeks to three years. Our Caterpillars classroom is available for children six weeks through approximately eight months and is themed after the popular children's book, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. Our teachers in this class are dedicated to providing high quality infant care by providing a sanitary and welcoming environment and assisting our children 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.

For this age group we primarily focus on maintaining the infant's own schedule. However, as students grow and develop, we offer an increasingly structured and stable schedule.
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. For young infants, each child will have their very own lesson plan created for them each week. Lesson Plans will be posted within the classroom and will be posted on each family's Parent Portal so that families can examine what activities their children will be working on. Below is a sample of our weekly lesson plan for young infants.
Feeding processes are very important for maintaining the health and well-being of all of our infants and staff. Below is a list of our facility feeding policies, meal plans, and more.
Children are welcome to bring their own Breast Milk, Premade Formula, and/or lunches & snacks. We will provide Breakfast & two snacks a day for no additional charge. To have formula or lunch provided, the cost is an additional $2.25 per day.
