Eagle’s Nest Infant & Toddler Daycare

Please note that the program is currently full and the waitlist is closed.

Our infant/toddler program works around the needs of the children. This includes eating, sleeping and activities that promote the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical (fine and gross motor) well-being of both the individual child and the group. Materials and activities revolve around the interests of the children.

The philosophy of the program focuses on emergent curriculum, using inquiry and critical thinking to engage children in their learning. Pedagogical narrations is used as a tool to document the interests of the children.

Throughout the children’s day they will have the opportunities for developing the following skills:

  • Fine motor – manipulatives, art, puzzles, loose parts etc.
  • Gross motor – inside and outside
  • Socialization – including stories, music, literacy etc.
  • Art – non-structured art that focuses on fine motor skills and creativity
  • Social Emotional Regulation – use of the CALM curriculum

Children will eat and nap on their own schedule. Staff work with families to look at the needs of both the child and the needs of the family.

Children participate in outdoor play to twice a day (morning and afternoon) for approximately an hour each time. The specific times may vary to accommodate children’s feeding and napping schedules.
