Infant Connections Class Agenda
2019/2020 School Year
Sing with me: September 10th
A great way to build language is through songs, finger-plays, and reading, even with young infants. Songs can be sung throughout the day for fun and often, can help in difficult transitions. We will join together to sing some of the songs that are sung in the classroom and talk about the importance of language development.
Let's Get Moving: October 8th
Debatably, one of the most important sensitive periods for a young infant is movement. We will be discussing the relationship freedom of movement has to a child’s brain development. There will be plenty of opportunities to move around the classroom with your little one and explore the environment in a way that they do.
Learn With Me: November 12th
Infants absorb everything around them, especially language. Come learn why we introduce our little ones to Spanish and Sign Language early on.
Baby's 1st Foods: December 10th
We will be discussing the when and how of introducing first foods or new foods to your infant. Our very own Chef Liz will be visiting us for this fun class. She will go over some healthy food choices and great tips on what to feed your budding foodie.
Laugh With Me: January 14th
We will be discussing the importance of play for young infants. Parents will get a chance to share with the group what makes their infant laugh and giggle. There will be songs and materials for exploration that inspire play and laughter.
Read With Me: February 11th
Building a love for reading can start early. Join us for a night of sharing. We will share some of our favorite books to read with young children and invite you to bring some of your child’s favorites. Reading with a young child looks different than reading with an older child. We will talk about that difference and also how important it is to label (with language) everything in an infant’s world.
Explore With Me: March 17th
We will be covering one of the sensitive periods for this age: sensory perception. We will discuss how infants experience the world through their senses. We will be enjoying this class outside as we also talk about how beneficial outdoor exploration is to a child’s developing senses, even for the youngest infant.
Guest speaker – TBA: April 14th
Splash with me: May 12th
Come join the fun as we splash around in the infant playground. There will be plenty of water activities so bring a towel and water diaper. We will also have a swim coach join us and share some tips on water safety.
Happy 150th Birthday
