We do not have a “schedule” for the infant room. We believe that children eat when they are hungry and sleep when they are tired. We try to give them plenty of space to move around inside and outside each day. We read to them, sing to them, and enjoy them.

To help the children bond with only a few adults, and to assist the adults in their efforts to personally respond to the uniqueness of each child, we use a Primary care-giving approach. Each adult is responsible for the same children each day. This not only allows the care giver to personally become involved with only 3 or 4 children and respond to them individually, but it also makes recording of their primary care much easier to manage. This does not mean that the care giver ignores the other children or refuses to assist them if their primary care-giver is busy.
