To provide respectful, individualized care that promotes each child’s development, the ratio of infants to caregivers and the overall group size needs to be low. Just as important are the particular personal qualities of infant teachers, such as receptivity, caring, serenity, emotional maturity, commitment to, and interest in, infant development. Palcare is blessed with a group of wonderful Infant Teachers/Caregivers, as well as several wonderful substitute caregivers. They have specific training in infant development and receive ongoing In-service training to enhance their professional skills. The ratio for the Infant Program is one Teacher/Caregiver for every four children.
