Here our littlest students are cared for with the utmost tenderness and love. Each baby follows their own personalized schedule as per their parent's instructions. Most newborns eat and sleep on demand, but if they have strict schedule we strive to follow it.
We set up their environment to encourage them to reach each developmental milestone. We give them toys to play with, hold, rock and sing to them often at first. Then we add tummy time and help them sit with support. Soon they are sitting on their own and starting to move around a little bit.
We read to them and play music for them. We feed them according to the schedule that their parents specify. When the time comes we carefully introduce new foods.
At our school the newborns are separated from the other babies for the majority of their day so they can play and be safe without being crawled or stepped on.
