PROGRAM FOR children 12 weeks THROUGH 12 months
Infant care at Small Savers is a distinct kind of care from the care of older children and is based on your baby's individual characteristics and needs. We encourage activities to enhance your baby's social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. We plan plenty of time for free movement around the room, interaction with toys and equipment, walks outdoors, and one-to-one interaction with your baby's primary caregiver. Each baby's daily activity is based on his or her evolving pattern of playing, eating and sleeping, which is tracked by their primary caregiver using the Portage Guide to Early Education Checklist.
PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN 12 months through 18-24 months
The Toddler I program provides for the development of the whole child in the areas of physical, social, intellectual and emotional growth.
