VALUES

PROFESSIONAL INSPIRATIONS

Voyagers’ infant program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia schools in Italy, along with the study and work of many early childhood notables including Deb Curtis and Margie Carter – Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers.

OUR INFANT CLASSROOM

Infants are 3 – 15 months old. Children are welcome into this nursery and move to the toddler room based on their age and readiness, and following conversations with parents.

VOYAGERS’ INFANT CARE APPROACH

Positive, caring relationships are at the heart of our programs. Warm and loving relationships are developed between teachers and infants, support staff and infants, infants and infants, and infants and toddlers and preschoolers. With so many people invested in each child’s well-being, there is no doubt they will thrive. We attentively care for each child’s well-being as we discover ways to support individual curiosity and exploration. Our infant care teachers treat daily routines as learning opportunities for the infant, and set the stage,  well organized and conveniently arranged, for learning. Staff thoughtfully create developmentally appropriate, safe, inclusive, and engaging environments.

IN OUR INFANT ROOM
