Grand Teton & Glacier
6 weeks - 18 months
We understand that enrolling your child in daycare may be a difficult decision to make. Our infant classrooms provide a loving, nurturing and safe environment, just as if they were at home. Our goal is to create a bond with every family in our center to create our “Parkside Family.”
Our routines are individualized to your child’s needs. As your child becomes older we will discuss more opportunities for your child to begin to grow into more of a group routine, which includes eating snacks and lunch together, going outside and having one longer nap in the middle of the day. Safety for children is extremely important, we look for families to provide foods that have already been introduced at home to have at Parkside. Our classrooms provide opportunities for children to explore in a safe place. We do not allow any outside shoes in our classrooms, in order to provide the most safety while children are on our floors.
Our teachers provide opportunities for learning and exploration daily; we use Creative Curriculum to help us provide age-appropriate opportunities for understanding and growth. Creative Curriculum supports the development of children in four domains: physical, language, cognitive and social/emotional development. In addition to Creative Curriculum, or program uses Conscious Discipline. Conscious Discipline is a nationally known program which supports the social and emotional development of children. Conscious Discipline is intertwined in our daily routines with children.
Throughout the day we:
Provide language activities with your children through reading and singing with your child
Provide floor time for physical development
Outside play (when the weather is appropriate)
Interacting with peers
Having intimate moments with their teacher, through feedings, diaper changes and play
