Welcome to the Infant Classroom

Funshine’s Infant Program has been specially designed to create a warm and secure environment for each infant. Our experienced and caring staff have a passion for nurturing and caring for young children. Teachers focus on the development and care of each child as an individual. Babies work on developmentally appropriate activities like tummy time, hand eye coordination play, practicing pincer grip, activities such as sensory exploration, crawling and standing skills, music and movement and most importantly are provided a lot of love and affection.

Health, Hygiene and Safety

Health, hygience and safety are our top priority! We have secure entrances and require written approval for any guest pick-ups. Toys and equipment are sanitized throughout the day, and as they are placed in children's mouths. A professional cleaning company cleans and disinfects each evening, and the floor rugs are professionally cleaned quarterly and spot treated as needed.

Qualified and experienced staff

All of our Infant Teachers are certified in Infant/Toddler First Aid, CPR and Safe Sleep Practices. In addition to being highly qualified, they are experienced, dedicated and loving. Ms. Donna opened our infant classroom over 10 years ago, and Ms. Rosana has been with Funshine for 6 years.

Open Door Policy

At Funshine we have an open-door policy. We welcome and encourage parents wishing to visit their child during the day. A separate room is available for mothers wishing to breastfeed or grandparents who would like to visit.

Play Based Learning

The philosophy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best by doing. Learning isn’t just repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and to learn firsthand about the world we live in. In their early years, children explore the world around them by using all their senses and having fun! Check out one of our lesson plans plans to explore how we use intentional fun to foster development!

Communication

Funshine uses an easy to use app & web based parent communication and family involvement tool called Daily Connect. Daily Connect provides real time communication of diaper changes, feedings, activities and photo's are shared throughout the day.

Small Groups

Our infant class is separated into two different classrooms. Our infant classroom has baby’s ages 6 weeks to around 8 months. When children begin crawling, they “graduate” to our Waddler classroom, where there is additional space for them to develop crawling, and soon walking skills. The Waddlers participate in different sensory development experiences, like painting and active play in our indoor gym.

Sign Language and Spanish

Sign Language and Spanish begin in our infant classroom with basic communication and motor skill development being the focus. Research on baby sign language has found that teaching baby signs improved cognitive and emotional development. Far from slowing down speech, baby sign language actually increases the rate of verbal development and at the same time increases the parent/child bond.
