Infant Curriculum

 

The infant program is holistic and focused on optimum periods for learning characteristics of infant development in the first three years of life. Holistic development emphasizes the development of infants’ emerging physical, sensory-motor, perceptual, cognitive, language and social-emotional skills.

The framework that determines the pedagogy and key practices of the infant program is guided by three distinctive features; caregiving, attachment and play.

Caregiving

Caregiving provide the context through which much of the infants’ learning takes place. Careful attention given to promoting infant well-being and comfort through caregiving tasks and routines.

 Infant Curriculum Caregiving

Attachment

Infant attachment with a familiar caregiver who is sensitive and responsive forms the basis for developing trust, emotional security and well-being.

 Infant Curriculum Attachment

Play

Play is central to the daily routine of the infant program. Play creates opportunities and the context for infants to observe and learn about the world, promotes important skills in cognition, language, physical, social and emotional learning.

Infant curriculum Play 

Curriculum design promotes holistic development; focusing on three main developmental domains: physical (body and motor), social and emotional (getting along with others, and feelings), and early learning (cognition and language) development.
