LEARNING BEGINS AT BIRTH
The first years of a child’s life are a prime time for learning. A large portion of a child’s foundational development occurs from birth to age three. In fact, 90% of a child’s brain development occurs in the first five years of their life, making it a critical window for early education as they develop new skills and explore new learning opportunities.
This is why a high quality infant child care program is so important – the day-to-day, early care and education experiences of infants and toddlers influence their lifelong learning! At JP Kids & Company, our infant program is top-rated by parents!
As infants, children learn the basics of human interaction, including how to communicate with others, regulate their emotions, and generally make sense of the world. It is essential that an infant care program, such as JP Kids, provide children with nurture, comfort, and appropriate interaction with adults and other babies and children, along with fun and active play. Quality early care also needs to meet the child at his or her level with attention to safety, health, and language development.
FOR INFANTS AT JP KIDS & COMPANY… AN EXCITING WORLD OF SIGHTS & SOUNDS
Infants learn by experimenting and interacting with their world. Low, open, uncluttered shelves with clean, high-quality toys invite children to play and explore. Toys are rotated on a regular basis so that the children never grow tired of them.
Exposure to music is a very important part of a child’s cognitive development. The infants’ lesson plans include singing songs every day, plus a wide variety of music that is used to create a rich soundscape as a background for different activities during the day.
LOVING AND CARING STAFF AT JP KIDS & COMPANY
Our team of staff members and teachers create a culture that radiates positivity and love, leaving your children inspired and excited to come to school.
LEARNING THROUGH A CUSTOMIZED CURRICULUM FOR EACH CHILD
The schedule and space at JP Kids & Company is structured to allow children to pace themselves and select activities based on their individual needs. Knowledge is not given to children; they learn through playful and meaningful interactions with materials and trusted adults. This means that each child processes experiences uniquely. Teachers adapt and plan curriculum in response to this dynamic character of learning for young children.
PHYSICAL PLAY FOR INFANTS
Physical play is essential to early learning. Our beautiful large outdoor play space in the woods provides opportunities for age-appropriate physical play that releases the energies of the day. Children love our outdoor play area, shaded by trees and dappled with sun. There is also space for older kids to kick a ball or play in small or large groups.
INVITING CLASSROOMS FOR BABIES
Classrooms are set up specifically to encourage exploration and learning. Each classroom is prepared with great care and attention to detail. Setting up the classroom is integral to each child’s independence and intellectual development and provides an environment that excites them to explore and develop new skills.
KEEPING PARENTS CONNECTED WITH THEIR INFANTS
Parents’ involvement in an infant's care and development is important. We work closely with parents to develop individualized care plans for each child, and provide constant communication via our BrightWheel app. The parents’ group at JP Kids is one of the great benefits families love. Some daycares don’t want to hear suggestions and input from parents but we welcome it! The parent group is an actively engaged community that allows you to get to know others in your child’s community, as well as give any input to the school!
ENTHUSIASM FOR LIFELONG LEARNING IN ALL CHILDREN
Children who receive quality early childhood education are reportedly more confident and curious, which causes them to perform better in grade school. Children will eventually learn how to manage challenges and build resilience in times of difficulty; settle easily at school to reap the benefits of education faster; and acquire a long-term interest in learning different things, including playing music, dancing, singing, construction, cooking, etc.
