A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A STARGAZER

Our youngest infants rarely follow a consistent routine – they are fed, put to sleep, and enjoy play time all at their own rhythms. As they grow, they begin to develop more of a daily routine that includes snack time, outdoor play, snack time and lunch time, bathroom routine (diapering and handwashing), circle time (singing and dance) and plenty of free play and exploration.

One of our main focuses is learning through discovery. Infants are very inquisitive and will study an object until they have figured it out. Staff will guide the infants through this discovery by providing new materials, stacking activities, push toys, and sensory materials and tables with age appropriate sensory items. Stargazers will also be introduced to yoga, with a special class just for their age.

At the end of their Stargazer Journey, infants will receive 4 main badges of accomplishment: Walking, Pincer Grip, Beginner Literacy and Baby Signing.

WALKING

Through a variety of well researched and tested materials, infants will have the opportunity to roll over, crawl and walk in a safe environment.

PINCER GRIP

Kepler Caregivers will provide spoons and forks at meal time to enhance the pincer grip and to introduce eating with utensils.

BEGINNER LITERACY

By providing board/vinyl or cloth books, Kepler Caregivers will read along with the infant, pointing to illustrations, emphasizing sounds, encouraging touch of the book’s textures and acknowledging colors.

BABY SIGNING

By signing and modeling appropriate real language (no baby talk) it will strengthen various types of communication.
