Kidz World learning Center has two infant rooms. Infant Room 1 is for babies 6 weeks to approximately 12months. (They are moved to Infant Room 2 based on their level of mobility.) Infant Room 2 is for babies approximately 12 to 18 months of age. The staff/child ratio in both rooms is one staff member for every four infants.
Parent Communication/Daily Reports
We use a Brightwheel App, is it automated daily reports with activities, notes, photos, and videos. Personalized for each family.
Each infant is assigned his/her own crib. Crib sheets are provided by the Center and changed weekly unless they are soiled—then they are changed immediately. At Kidz World Learning Center we practice Safe Sleep to reduce the risk of SIDS. We place the infants only on their backs to sleep, and use sleep sacks provided by parents.
We ask that each infant bring three bottles, formula (unless they are on breast milk), baby cereal and baby food (when needed), diapers, diaper ointment, pacifier, and an extra set of clothes. The Center provides table food when your baby is ready for the transition. For infants who are breastfeeding, please bring bottles filled and ready to feed in a small, cooler-type insulated bag.
Our infants 1 and 2 room do not follow the center’s meal schedule, infants are fed as needed and as requested by parents. Foods are introduced as requested by parents.
Diapers are changed every two hours, or more often if needed. Parents are notified when diaper supplies run low.
Indoor Play/ Learning
The young infants are encouraged to have tummy time. They also have playtime under the floor gyms, in the “exersaucers” and in the jumpers. We have bouncy seats and several swings to help soothe them when needed. We use music, books, soft blocks and a wide variety of toys for them to play and learn.
Infant Room 2 is filled with educational and age-appropriate toys and materials. They follow a weekly curriculum including the following areas:
- Music & Movement/Story Time — Includes self-expression, songs, books, instruments and finger plays.
- Art & Sensory — Includes simple art projects, coloring and many different items to help with sensory development.
- Gross Motor Play — Includes activity walkers, a large cushioned climber and push/pull toys.
- Fine-Motor Play & Self – Help Skills Building—Includes stacking blocks, connecting toys, cooking projects and manipulative toys.
- Play & Learn Time — There is scheduled time at the beginning and end of each day for the kids to explore the room and play with their favorite toys. This is a good time for them to develop language and social skills.
