Both care-giving and play are important aspects of the
program. Feeding, for example,
not only meets the child’s physical needs, but also it provides
a variety of sensory experiences, pleasure, and satisfaction along with
an opportunity to learn social and self-help skills.
Play is a very important part of the infant and toddler
programs; it is vital your child’s growth and development, along
with providing opportunities for discovery through natural experiences. Infants and toddlers make discoveries
and choices, solve problems, and begin to learn what is of interest to
them. Play is promoted by providing time and
space with guidance. The
program is arranged to provide an environment conducive to play with constant
The primary function of the staff is to facilitate learning,
rather than to teach or train. Infants
and toddlers need stimulation from toys, pictures, and people. More importantly, however, they need to
discover that they can influence the people and objects around them. Our program emphasizes the importance
of positive, supportive interactions between our teachers and your child.
Teachers sing songs and read stories to encourage language acquisition;
they pass balls and play games to develop motor skills; but most of all
they spend lots of time cuddling and talking to babies to instill trust
and provide comfort.
Age-appropriate activities promote cognitive and social
development in a warm, nurturing environment.
While exploring their play area full of stimulating toys, babies
are encouraged to develop at their own pace.
The importance of the parent’s role is well understood. The staff will provide care to the child,
which parallels the child’s care at home.
The staff works closely with the child’s family to define
exactly the type of care that would be in the best interest of the infant
or toddler. It is the intention of Little Red Schoolhouse,
Inc. to ensure that the values, culture, and goals of the parents are
incorporated into the care of the child.
It is the hope of LRS that the infant or toddler will see life
at LRS as an extension of life at home.
