This is the beginning of our Journey!
Bringing your new baby to childcare can be a very challenging decision for any parent, especially a new one. At Precious Memories Preschool of Sandy Hollow, we make this transition as comfortable as possible for both you and your child. Our main objective is to provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment where your child can thrive and grow to their full potential. Our goal is to create a setting where parents and children feel secure and supported.
The philosophy and goal of our infant program is to provide all of the comforts of home, while encouraging growth and development through activities specifically designed for their age group. Infants receive a lot of tender care by well trained, responsible and mature staff. They spend a good portion of their day singing, listening to stories and experiencing plenty of floor time with their friends and caretakers.
In our youngest classrooms, caretakers follow each infant’s individual schedule. We try to keep your baby’s routine as consistent as possible to your routine at home. This first year of your infant’s life is such a time of growth and change; good communication between you and your child’s teacher is essential. Parents will find plenty of opportunity to talk to the staff at either drop-off or pick-up time and we have an open door policy where you may call or pop in at anytime. In our Infant 1 & 2 classrooms, infants receive plenty of tender loving care, floor play, singing, stories and one on one teacher time. Your baby will make new friends, grow and learn in a caring and safe surrounding.
As Children grow and develop, they will progress through the program, to our Infant 3, Pre-Toddler 1 and 2 classrooms. A daily routine with a snack, midday lunch and afternoon nap are introduced. Children enjoy dance, movement, beginning art projects and a variety of activities that encourage skill building and self-expression. Circle time, dramatic play, and outside activities are also a part of each day’s curriculum. Kindness and empathy are emphasized in all classrooms as your children build social skills and lasting friendships.
At Precious Memories Preschool of Sandy Hollow, we are able to individualize our program to meet the needs of each child. Teachers will follow your child’s daily schedule and all of the information from their day will be sent home in the form of a “Daily Reflection”.
