Infant Program

Adventureland Academy Infant Program 6 weeks to 18 months

Infants grow and learn every day. Adventureland provides a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where infants can explore and make new discoveries. Young children learn through play, and our Infant care program is designed to provide infants with the skills that serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning. We appreciate you trusting us with your infant's care and education, and 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.

Your infant's early education at Adventureland Academy

Our five areas of focus give your baby endless opportunities to learn and grow.

Communicating With Others

Adventureland helps your infant learn to engage with others.
We talk with your child; communicate verbally and through non-verbal gestures; tell stories and sing songs to model conversational skills; and use picture books to build association between sounds, objects and words.

Building Brain Power

Adventureland prepares your infant to think and reason.
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.

Making New Friends

Adventureland lays the foundation for your infant to develop trusting relationships.
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.

Growing a Healthy Body

Adventureland helps your infant improve mobility and coordination.
We support your baby as he or she rolls from side-to-side and learns to crawl, stand, and walk; support the development of motor skills with blocks and shape boards; and meet your child's individual needs for rest andnutrition. Adventureland is part of the USDA Food program and offer nutritious meals and snacks.  Before they are offered table food, we offer the most common of Infant Formula, baby food, cereal, and infant snacks.

Nurturing Creativity

Adventureland encourages your child to express individuality.
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 movement and music.

 

Here at Adventureland Academy our infant program also abides by state-mandated teacher-to-child ratios. And, you will receive a log of your child’s feeding, sleeping, diapering and learning activities every day, so you can be confident your baby will experience a nurturing and calming environment, focused on developing positive and trusting relationships.
