Classroom Elements

Emotional: At Kids World, our infant program is designed to help your child learn to establish essential trust and security, build a routine, and develop relations with those around them. 

Social: Your child develops their social skills by building awareness of others, understanding reciprocal interactions, and comprehending and responding to social cues. 

Physical: Infants need to move, and your child needs space and the freedom to develop natural reflexes and grasps, builds their sense of body control, and strengthens hand-eye coordination. 

Cognitive: Cognitive development is an integral piece of your child’s early education. Through inquiry and play, they’ll explore objects within the classroom using their senses, practice imitation, and discover object permanence. They explore the concepts of same and different and cause and effect, anticipate familiar events, and learn about setting goals. Through various activities, they learn about associating properties with things, awareness of their surroundings, tracking objects, and early concepts of quantity. Finally, they bolster their communication skills through one-on-one interactions, listening and responding, babbles, imitating sounds, and essential awareness of spoken language function.

Music: Our lovely staff will sing, clap and bring age-appropriate instruments which your infant can explore and will build the concepts of steady beat, controlled movement, and love of song.

 

The Environment

Our carefully designed infant environment allows children to explore and experience the world around them.  The design changes to meet the developmental stages and sensitive periods of each infant in the classroom.

In the classroom your child will experience:

  • Natural and soft lighting

  •  Child size tables, chairs, and other furnishings. 

  • Space for freedom and movement, which is essential to the development of the infant’s potential. 

  • Characteristics of order, simplicity, and beauty meet the needs of the child and inspire curiosity.

  • Flexible routines and activities that reinforce the rhythmic pattern. These activities are designed to promote the development of social skills, emotional growth, and physical coordination, which will help the child gain independence and self-esteem as well as cognitive preparation for their future. 

  • Activities that are designed to help develop fine motor (pre-writing), vocabulary, develop coordination and strength. 

  • Freedom to explore the classroom to encourage curiosity and gross motor skills. 

  • Developmental grouping based on developmental stage: babies (non-crawler), crawlers and walkers (climbers), to allow for individualized growth.
