Welcome to the Mini Masters Learning Academy’s Infant Classroom. The three primary teachers in this classroom are Ms. Shannon, Ms. Evette and Ms. Stacy. In our infant classroom, we follow a ratio of one staff member to every three babies. Our classroom enrollment is nine babies. One of our primary goals for the infants is to form a strong attachment between the baby and the primary caregiver. Each infant has a primary caregiver that devotes special attention to each child, including individual sleep and eating patterns for each child.
The infant classroom is designed to promote the cognitive, communicative, sensory and motor development of each child. Our weekly sensory activities such as water and textural play activities encourage infants to explore through their senses and actions. Our art activities such as finger painting and scribbling teach the infants to control small-hand muscles and coordinate eye and hand movement. We encourage language and communication development throughout all activities, and we teach basic sign language, pairing the signs and gestures with words. Each infant has a personalized lesson plan specific to their age and the milestones they should be working towards. These lesson plans are updated monthly and as your baby progresses. Please be sure to talk to your infant’s teacher about the goals your baby is working towards.
