infant room (6 weeks - 18 months)

Welcome to the Infant Room at Joy Childcare

where the adventure begins! 

Research has shown that a child’s first five years play an important role in their brain development.  These early years provide the best opportunity for building a solid foundation for their success in school and in life.  Our goal is to support each child in developing socially, emotionally, physically, in their language development, and in their thinking and problem solving skills.  To help foster this development, we use the Creative Curriculum® in creating lesson plans, classroom set-up, and performing assessments. 

 

Outside of the classroom is a small bulletin board where you will find a copy of the weekly lesson plan, the classroom newsletter, the daily schedule, teacher hours, and primary caregiver list.

 

Parent and teacher communication plays a key role in children’s success.  One means of communication is through our Daily Sheet.  Each day upon arrival, the person dropping off will complete the top portion of the daily sheet which gives information as to the child’s last feeding, most recent diaper change, etc.  On the bottom half, the teacher will document diaper changes, feedings, naps, and any other special information for that day.  Each child’s care is individualized to meet their specific needs and schedule.
