INFANTS DAILY SCHEDULE SUMMARY

Every moment with your infant is precious at Peaceful Beginnings! The infant environment, is designed to meet your child’s every need and demand! There is open floor space for your infant to crawl and move about. There is a rocking chair to soothe and rock your infant into a peaceful rest! An assortment of Montessori materials to engage your infant’s cognition and lovely European beds to allow your infant the freedom and mobility to be “free” to move around the room at his/her own pace. During Devotion time your infant will hear spiritual songs and be introduced to praise and worship and in closing of Devotion your child’s teacher will send forth blessings for your infant in prayer. 

We know that letting your infant come to us may be difficult. But rest assured each contact and care-giver your infant encounters will work with you hand in hand to help your child feel as comfortable as possible. You will be given a daily written report about your child’s day as well as encouragement to help support the growth taking place in your infant!
