30 days - 12 months
Our infant program focuses on the earliest stages of development. We emphasize attachment, safety, and infant lead needs. Strategies like infant-lead feeding and sleeping schedules are employed to make our infant classroom feel as much like home as possible. We strive to create a welcoming environment that encourages infants to develop motor, language, and social skills. This provides a great foundation for continued development throughout their early childhood adventure at Happy Feet Academy.
Safety and Training
Our team is comprised of highly educated and qualified teachers. Each team member has been background checked, fingerprinted, and is certified in First Aid, CPR, Blood Borne Illnesses, and Safe Sleep Practices. We also have a registered nurse inspect our infant environment monthly to ensure safety, prevention of illness spreading, and cleaning practices.
Here at Happy Feet Academy we believe in fostering the healthiest relationship with parents. We strive to achieve this relationship by implementing the following policies:
Parent-Teacher conferences held every six months.
We track daily feeding, diapering, and napping data and enter this information into the Brightwheel app so you get real time updates about your child’s day.
We have an open-door policy and invite parents to visit the center anytime. This includes working together to find a schedule that works for mother and baby should you choose to continue breastfeeding. We are also willing to store & feed breast milk via bottle if your child is not formula fed. Please see the parent handbook for more information about our infant feeding options.
