- Tuition & Enrollment
Welcome to the Hedge Hogs Classroom! In the Polar Pals room, we provide your infant with a safe and nurturing environment where infants can explore and make new discoveries. Young children learn through play, and our infant program is designed to provide infants with the skills that serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning. We’re committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your child. In addition to caring for your infant, everything we do is designed for learning.
The Infant Program Features:
Throughout each day, our five areas of focus give your baby endless opportunities to learn and grow.
We talk with your child; communicate verbally and through non-verbal gestures; read stories and sing songs to model conversational skills; and use picture books to build association between sounds, objects and words.
We help your child explore the concepts of cause and effect, trial and error, and object permanence through play; provide a variety of materials of different colors, sizes, textures, and shapes; and encourage the use of all five senses to discover the world around them!
We respond to your baby with sensitivity and attention; use words, facial expressions, and eye contact to communicate; and use family photos to promote self-awareness and provide continuity with your child’s home.
We support your baby as he or she rolls from side-to-side and learns to crawl, stand, and walk; support development of motor skills with blocks and shapes; and meet your child’s individual needs for rest and nutrition.
We provide paint, crayons and other tools that promote artistic exploration and creativity; support imaginative play with photo cards and puppets; and encourage self-expression through music and movement.
