Infants and toddlers need to know they can trust their caregivers to take care of them and meet their needs on a daily basis. By experiencing respectful and responsive care throughout their day, infants and toddlers learn they can count on their teachers for comfort, love, support, encouragement and kindness. Teachers model responsive care, which means they adjust their teaching to meet each child's developmental needs.
The Infant Room schedule is the most flexible because each infant brings their own unique rhythm to the classroom. The program is built around their own personal daily schedule. The Toddler Room introduces more structure and routine to promote stability and security which is the foundation for future growth and development throughout the CYC.
