Older Infant Classroom

  • older infant classroom at Providence Connections

    The older infant classroom provides a safe space for exploring the environment and the small group size allows for one-on-one time for interactions and routines. The space also allows for movement and being active throughout the day in addition to scheduled gym time and outdoor play.  Caregivers model behaviors like sharing and kindness so children learn by example.

    The Classroom

    What perspective parents should know

    Children are treated individually with the ability to grow and develop at their own pace.

    • should be mobIle crawling or walking, using sturdy shoes
    • moving towards one nap per day
    • the children sleep on a cot at nap time
    • weaning from pacifier/bottle
    • using a “sippy” cup

    Goals at time of transition to next classroom

    • using a drinking cup
    • using utensils with skill
    • communicating verbally at end of meals
    • hand washing and drying
    • beginning potty practice
    • some recognition of objects, colors, animals.

      I have more than 15 years of service at Providence and I truly enjoy the Older Infant age group. Their ability to make connections is just beginning to develop as they explore the world around them. They are little scientists performing experiments every day.
