Infant Schedule

Kids Junction offers scheduling for 4 or 5 full days each week for children six weeks to 2 years.

Arrival TimeInfant2_0

This is the time for the parent and teacher to help the infant make the transition from parent to teacher. It is also a good time to discuss the infant’s night before, any concerns, and for the parent to write down any special information the teacher should be aware of.

Sleeping

Each child naps according to their own personal schedule. Times are recorded to let the parents know how long and at what time their child slept.

Eating

Very young infants eat as needed every 2 to 3 hours. It is the teacher’s responsibility to know each individual schedule as well as their physical and oral signals to feed them before they cry. The time of feedings, along with the amount of milk, formula, and food will be recorded. We hold the infants while feeding a bottle as it is a special time to nurture their physical, social, cognitive, and language development. Nutritional needs change as children develop. Solid foods are gradually introduced when the parent and teacher determine the child is ready.

Diapering

Infants diapers are checked after the child has been fed and periodically during the child’s awake time. Each child is checked and/or changed every two hours. Diaper changing provides one on one time with each child and is a good time to talk and sing to the infant, creating a positive feeling and connection with each child.

Preschool Time

Between sleeping and eating, each infant will spend time during each day playing and learning with his or her teacher to continue to nurture their physical, social, cognitive, and language development. Interactive times and playing alone times are alternated according to the child’s interest and energy levels. There are at least two opportunities a day for the children to be outside or go for walks in the strollers. Music and movement is also used throughout the day.

End of the Day

This is an important time to share with each parent about their child’s day. This is also a time for the infant to transition from teacher to parent.
