Our Programs – Infants

Infants

Infant Care

Our infant care program is for children ages 6 weeks to 12 months. Each infant receives individual attention from our qualified child care teachers and is provided with experiences which encourage their development throughout the day. Our Fort Collins child care centers communicate daily with  each family regarding their child’s activities and care.

Colorado Early Learning Curriculum

Our infant care program uses the Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines for curriculum planning. The Guidelines organize descriptions for child development for infants and toddlers within six domains:

  • Social Development
  • Emotional Development
  • Language & Literacy Development
  • Cognitive Development
  • Approaches to Learning
  • Physical Development & Health
  • fort-collins-early-learning

  • early-learning-cirriculum

Baby Sign Language

In the infant care program, we also incorporate the use of baby sign language in the classroom. Research has shown sign language can provide infants the ability to communicate earlier than their speech development. Sign language is a fun and engaging way for teachers and parents to interact with their infants.
