Here at Mt. Elizabeth Academy, our babies are cared for by loving, enthusiastic, and nurturing caregivers in a safe, soothing, and happy environment. Their daily needs are addressed with smiles and frequent eye contact with their teachers. Diaper changes, feedings, rest time, and playtime happen with loving interaction between baby and caregiver. Our infant rooms focus on:
- Songs & Sign Language
- Oral Language
- Motor Skills
- Sensory Skills
Infant Room Highlights
Our goal is to ensure every one of our babies has a solid foundation towards the development of their five senses, sign language, fine and gross motor skills, as well as ample opportunities to socialize with other children.
Mt. Elizabeth Babies participate in Circle Time with their teachers to promote socialization. Baby sign language is taught and used daily to help grow their self-esteem and confidence. The babies interact and socialize with each other and learn from one another as well. From songs to fingerplays, sign language to sensory building activities, the babies are always engaged in meaningful lessons and play.
The teachers are nurturing and committed caregivers. This ensures the babies are in a safe and loving environment. The thematic focus of the curriculum helps to provide the babies with multiple opportunities to absorb information, draw on their five senses, and grow both physically and mentally. We provide high-quality instructional materials and ongoing professional development for our teachers.
We keep parents informed throughout the day with pictures, videos and messages from the teachers using our secure Brightwheel App. Our parents love seeing their baby throughout the day, and knowing that they are in a loving, caring, and supportive environment.
The Infant Room
Our room resembles a relaxing home atmosphere with cribs, age-appropriate toys, bouncers, high chairs and rocking chairs. Each child has their own cubby for personal items. Parents provide bottles (formula or breast milk), diapers, wipes, and extra clothes. If and when the baby starts to transition from baby food and purees to “real” food, we provide healthy, wholesome and nutritious meals.
