Cubs (6 weeks to 16 months)
The Cub room schedule is individualized to meet the different needs of each child. We provide baby food and table food for breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack, but personalize formula/breast milk feeding times to the individual child. Each child has an individual curriculum plan and works on appropriate developmental milestones. The classroom creates this plan in collaboration with each family. Children are given opportunities throughout each day to explore their environment and are provided interesting materials to encourage exploration with all senses. We provide a language-rich environment through song, reading books and reflecting on the children’s experiences. We place an importance and emphasis on baby’s early need to feel trust and attachment through responsive care giving.
We provide open lines of communication by sending home a “daily sheet” of your child’s day. This serves as a snapshot of their daily experiences and lays out their routine. We document all bottles, diaper changes, foods offered/food eaten, naps taken and their overall mood. We have an open-door policy, so parents are always welcome to come in to see their child or breastfeed. Parents can call the center at any time for a progress update. We believe in working in unison with parents to ensure consistency between home care and our childcare.
