Beginning at age 2, the children will learn in both English and Spanish on a daily basis, through games, songs, stories, and projects. Their maternal language, whatever it may be, will always be reinforced, and they will begin adapting to learning and speaking fluently in both.
From this age the students will begin working on monthly projects that will allow for the relation of their learning and their home lifestyles. Parents will have the privilege of participating in the presentation of their children’s projects at the end of each month.
Ficus Tree School provides a safe daycare environment for infants as young as 6 weeks of age. We work hard to create an environment where your baby will not only be cared for and loved, but where his/her intellectual, emotional, and physical development are stimulated through movement, exploration, and one-on-one attention.
A Day at the Infant Center
Our daily program is based on each infant’s unique needs. We will implement a schedule which coincides with the one you have developed with your baby at home. Caring for your infant will entail a team effort between home and school. We want to make sure each baby’s day consists of familiarity and consistency.
Some of your infant’s activities will include:
- Diaper changes
- One-on-one interactions
- Outdoor time
- Arts and crafts
- Music class
To keep you informed and involved, your infant’s daily activities will be documented and provided in writing each day.
