Infant Daycare

Teaching Your Infant to Play to Learn

At Kid’s Harbor, we know that every moment with an infant is precious. That’s why we coo, cuddle, rock and do everything possible to bond with your baby and develop a sense of trust. Through simple games like peekaboo and reading stories throughout the day, our loving teachers begin the foundational work for later learning and help infants grow in areas such as:

  • Language development–using books, songs and activities that match your child’s development level
  • Cognitive development—using activities like peekaboo, hunt and find, and shape-sorting toys
  • Motor Skill development — grasping toys, tummy time, and toys to push and pull around the room
  • Sensory development — touching items with various textures and feeling materials in the sensory bin
  • Rest and nap time   

We currently use FROG STREET INFANT CURRICULUM it is designed around the latest scientific early brain development research, it is designed to build strong foundations for little ones ages 0-18 months.

Toddler Daycare: 

Channeling Toddler Energy toward Learning

Toddlers: There’s no doubt that they’re a bundle of energy. But at Kid’s Harbor, we welcome that energy and excitement because we know that it’s a natural part of growth and learning. We’ll channel that energy into:

  • Motor Skill Development — tossing, catching, rolling, crawling, walking.
  • Language Development — reading time including our Share-A-Book activity and speech development
  • Music and Movement — dancing, singing, push toys and outdoor play.
  • Basic Concepts — helping notice and make sense of basic concepts, such as shapes and colors.
  • Artistic Development — art and construction projects.

Toddler Daycare is all about creating experiences that are active, sensory-based and meaningful. Our teachers lead young toddlers through age-appropriate activities to improve coordination and increase verbal and problem-solving skills. Our Powerful Beginnings child care curriculum is based on the idea that children are naturally curious and motivated to learn. So we provide them with the materials and experiences to help them understand and communicate in ways most meaningful to them. Our teachers get to know each child, learn their interests and plan developmentally appropriate, engaging activities such as; painting, water and sand play, book exploration, manipulative play, small group experiences and large group circle times. All of these experiences pave the way for toddlers in their path towards lifelong learning.

We currently use The Frog Street Toddler Curriculum it is designed around the latest scientific brain research and is comprised of 52 weeks of easy-to-use activities specifically created for children ages 18-36 months.
