Infant Program

Ages 6 weeks to 15 months.
The Maple Tree infant program is designed to meet the unique needs of each child. Individualized schedules are designed in coordination with parents to effectively balance the child's physical, cognitive, social, and emotional growth. With our adult to child ratio of approximately 1-to-3 our teachers are able to meet the individual needs of each child.

Learning Environment

In our bright and stimulating infant classroom, each day is filled with carefully designed activities to develop the physical, cognitive, social, spiritual and emotional needs of each child. Through observation and assessment, our dedicated and highly qualified teachers are able to plan curriculum that furthers children's developmental milestones.

Our Curriculum

Our primary lesson planning comes from the Early Learning Success curriculum. You may find out more by visiting Earlylearningsuccess.net.

The infant room teachers have extensive knowledge of the early stages of child development and enjoy designing individualized plans for each the of little ones in their care. The teachers work with each baby at their current level of development. There is encouragement to work toward milestones and there is rejoicing when these are achieved. We present activities in a fun and supportive way, allowing each child to feel relaxed as they go through their day at Maple Tree.

Daily Schedule

Maple Tree designs each day to best fit the individual child's needs and intends to maintain a schedule similar to their home routine. Parents are asked to fill out a form which summarizes what a typical day is like for their child. We then tailor our plan to match their home schedule. A baby’s day usually consists of the following components:

  • Feeding
  • Diaper changing
  • Napping
  • Exercising (gross motor activities, tummy time, etc.)
  • Reading
  • Experiencing music/singing
  • Sensory stimulation or art experiences
  • Exploring materials within the classroom
  • Interacting with peers
  • Exposure to sign language
  • Going outdoors during the mild weather months (time spent on the baby playground as well as having stroller rides around our property)

What our families say

I love that there is a lot of outdoor play and field trips over to the monastery! I am lucky to have a safe and fun place to send my children and nephew!
