Our Cypress location accepts infants that are 12 months of age and walking.
Our Tomball location accepts infants starting at 6 weeks of age. Tomball has three separate infant rooms so the age range in each classroom is often less than six months. The infant program has developmentally appropriate toys, learning materials and climbing materials in order to build gross and fine motor skills.
Our teachers spend time each day with the children on various play “experiences” that are based on the children’s current level of development. Play Experiences include art, outside time, tummy time (for our non-crawling infants), sensory and discovery time, and gross motor play and more. While sitting at the feeding table, children are challenged with puzzles, sensory materials and soft toys to help them transition into a routine. While outside and in the gym, the children will play with riding toys, soft balls and play houses.
Teachers use tablets and the KidsReports app to provide regular updates throughout the day and letting parents know their child’s activities for the day. Parents also receive real time updates during the day letting them know about their child’s daily eating, diapering and sleeping routines.
We try to plan our classrooms so that children are playing and growing with others in their age range. Our teachers work with the families to help provide a secure, stable foundation upon which milestones such as sitting up, crawling, self-feeding, standing, and eventually walking are all achieved according to the child’s own rate of development. When the time comes to graduate into the next classroom, our teachers maintain open communication with the families to make sure the transition is a positive one for parent and child. We will usually make the transition over a few week period where the kids spend part of each day in their old and new classroom in order to make the transition as easy as possible on them.
