Linkage Childcare provides all Infants with a safe and nurturing environment. Infants will have opportunities to develop both large and small motor skills. Primary caregivers will meet your child’s physical and emotional needs throughout the day.
It is Linkage’s goal to foster an atmosphere of trust, love, and security. Your child will be involved in activities that will enrich their social, emotional, and physical growth. A written assessment will be available to parents in Spring and Fall. A conference will also be available at this time.
Your Child's Day
The curriculum is based on different bi-monthly themes. Linkage ChildCare Center offers Language Immersion Spanish curriculum helping children understand a new language and their own. All of the Infant Room activities are planned around that month’s theme. Themes are changed monthly to help the children grow, learn, and explore in their own way and at their own rate. All activities are planned with your baby’s age and developmental stage in mind. Individual lessons and activities are planned around your child’s meal schedules, during feeding, and diaper times and nap times.
Language Development — We help your infant's blooming language skill through the use of songs, stories, and finger plays. We encourage children to listen for, mimic and understand new words.
Art and Sensory —Infants are encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art. They develop a sense of innovation that will be important and useful in their future development.
Self-Help — As your baby gets older, teachers will encourage children to feed themselves, wash their hands, and become more independent.
Large Motor — We encourage the babies to participate in games, music, and movement. We work on developing their large motor skills like rolling, crawling and walking.
Cognitive and Small Motor — They will be given an opportunity to try out their small motor skills and strengthen the dexterity in their fingers by providing a variety of manipulative toys.
Social and Emotional — Social play will start with interactions with the primary caregiver and will follow through to learning to play side by side with a friend. Teachers will promote self-esteem and self-worth in all children.
Daily notes are sent home for parents with information about your child’s day, including diaper changes, meal records, nap records, and general mood of your child.
A written curriculum and schedule are available for parents review at any time.
