At Today’s Life Schools & Child Care, we strive to provide a stimulating environment where each child is well cared for, safe, and treasured. We cater to each individual child and their specific needs throughout each milestone in their development.
As parents, we understand that you like to know what is going on with your child at all times, which is why at Today’s Life Schools & Child Care, we follow a weekly schedule. Each week we have a different theme-based curriculum that includes daily circle time. This time is spent singing songs, displaying pictures, showing flashcards, and reading stories in order to help enhance your child’s cognitive development. Some of the other activities that you can expect to find in our daily schedule include sign language, art projects, baby massages, daily sensory activities, and more!
For the safety of the children, we offer both non-mobile and mobile infant classrooms.
At Today’s Life Schools & Child Care, we strive to help your child develop in all areas. Our classroom goals also include helping the infants:
- Learn with their whole body and with all of their senses
- Sustain natural curiosity and a desire to learn
- Learn within the context of trusting relationships
- Communicate what they know
Infant 1 Program Focus
We practice tummy time, rolling over, holding a bottle, sleeping in a crib, clapping, crawling, and sitting. We practice these skill in order to prepare your infant to move to our mobile infant room.
Infant 2 Program Focus
We practice walking, using sippy cups, eating table food, going without a morning nap, decreasing the use of the pacifier, and sleeping on a cot. These new skills prepare them for their transition into the toddler room.
Health and Safety
Our infant program is designed for children who are between the ages of six weeks and 16 months old. In this program, our professional caregivers will provide each baby with love, attention, and security in a safe and healthy environment. To maximize safety, the ratio in the infant rooms is one teacher to four infants.
All of our staff are well-trained and up-to-date on Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) and Abusive Head Trauma (AHT) classes before they even start working with the children and continue to renew the courses every year.
Because nap times are important for happy, healthy babies, we follow each baby’s cues and parent instructions to make sure that each child receives adequate rest. We follow strict guidelines and practice safe-sleep procedures.
Health and sanitation is very important to us. We maintain a clean environment for the children, which sometimes can be quite the job, as you well know. To achieve our high standard of cleanliness, we wash and sanitize our toys and equipment numerous times throughout the day.
The procedures we follow for diapering focus on each baby’s comfort and health, while also maintaining a sanitary area.
In order to protect the health of the other children in the classroom, we require each infant to receive a physical examination and current immunizations before enrollment.
Meals and Snacks
Until your baby is ready for regular table food, we follow your own diet plan using your food and bottles.
We know that the details of your baby’s care are important to you. Along with adherence to your instructions and preferences, you will receive daily report about your baby’s day. Beyond our daily parent/teacher communication, we offer parent/teacher conferences twice a year.
