The Infant Language Curriculum consists of day to day conversation as your infant is being cared for and moving about the classroom. Formal Lessons in language will consist of:
CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT CARDS- Weekly themed based vocabulary enrichment cards which are presented as a large group lesson.
YOUR BABY CAN READ PROGRAM- A Video Taped progressive curriculum which enriches word to picture associations.
SIGN LANGUAGE- An introduction to sign language of gestures and simple words used in day to day communication.
INTRODUCTION TO PHONICS- An introduction to the beginning phonetic sounds in the alphabet, through sound and symbol.
The Sensorial Curriculum will train the senses which will help prepare your infant for future academic lessons. Such lessons will increase visual discrimination, large and small motor development, sound recognition and the tactile sense.
Practical Life Curriculum
The Practical Life Curriculum will increase independent skills, eye-hand co-ordination, observation skills and concentration skills. Simple lessons in dressing, grooming and feeding will promote independent skills.
Simple Counting and finger plays will help your infant have a strong foundation of number sense.
There will be one Chapel time and two Devotion times in the Infant Community. This is a time to show reverence to God, do praise and worship and engage in Bible stories. A special prayer and blessing will be prayed over your infant daily during Chapel and Devotion times.
