DESCRIPTIONS & SCHEDULES

When infants begin at the daycare they follow the schedule that parents bring with them from home. As the child develops and changes they follow their own schedule.

Daily activities are selected from five developmental categories: sensory, social/emotional, gross motor, fine motor, and cognitive development. Fun activities and songs involve development of letter recognition and phonics.
