Infants | The Environment

The Infant Program has two main rooms: the Jellyfish Room for little babies up to the time they are walking well; the SeaStars Room for older babies up to two years old. The Jellyfish Room provides a gently stimulating environment with equipment and educational play materials that encourage babies to safely explore the physical world and what their bodies can do. You will not find restrictive equipment such as walkers, bouncers or playpens in the classrooms. They are not safe or healthy for young children in group care. The SeaStars Room offers more challenging equipment and introduces children to art materials, manipulatives, puzzles, blocks, and more. Both environments feature lots of books, pictures and mobiles. Each is divided into two play rooms so that children will interact in small groups, as is appropriate for their age. Each classroom has two separate sleeping rooms with cribs and, for older infants, sleeping cots. Children are in their cribs for sleeping only, not for play.

Note! Every week the SeaStars have Music and Movement Enrichment Classes in addition to their classroom daily activities.
