Infants and Waddlers

  
Backyard Bears lovingly attends to your infant’s needs and caters to their individual schedule.  Your little one will grow and flourish physically and emotionally while our teachers support new and growing interest and concepts.  Teachers will offer activities to support your infant’s development while offering plenty of time learning through exploration and discovery.  Infant circle time provides fun and stimulating activities such as stories and songs. Kaplan Learn Every Day Curriculum lays the foundation for learning with units geared toward apporaches to learning, cognitive development, language and communication, social and emotional development, and health and physical development.   Our infant teachers take pride in watching your little one grow each and every day!
  
  
As your infant transitions into a toddler they will move up to the older infant/toddler room.   Feeding and nap routines become established and your toddler starts to adapt to a regular schedule.  This room offers daily opportunities to explore and learn in a safe and stimulating environment.  Our teachers will begin to offer a variety of learning opportunities including circle time, self-directed, and teacher-directed activities each day!
