The Rainbow Room: 8 Weeks-Two Years Old
The Rainbow Room provides a warm, intimate setting for our infants. We follow the PITC philosophy (Click to access information regarding PITC) in our infant room; supporting family relationships and helping babies feel safe and secure. Every infant has an assigned primary caregiver to make the child gets the comfort and attention that he/she deserves. Continuity care is where it starts in the infant room, where the teacher will build a trusting relationship between the infant and their family. Baby signs are taught in the Rainbow Room in order for the caregiver and infant to be able to communicate with one another. We also use creative curriculum to focus on routines and experiences for our older infants and toddlers.
The Apple Room: Two-Year-Olds
The Apple Room is a room of discovery and developing of minds where children are interested in everything and ready to learn. At two-years-old, a child will move up to the Apple Room with his/her trusted continuity teacher. A preschool-based Creative Curriculum (Click to access information regarding Creative Curriculum) is used to help the developing two-year-old minds and enrich language from baby signs to socializing. Outdoor and large-motor play, healthy eating and habits and providing opportunities to use meaningful investigation of their world will also be influenced in this room.
