Infants

Stepping Stones is one of very few center settings in Lawrence that provide care for infants. We have experienced, specially trained teachers who provide a warm, loving and stimulating environment so babies can grow and flourish and parents can rest assured that their child is safe, secure and nurtured.

The Infant classroom is divided into two units with nine infants on Side 1 and eight infants on Side 2. Side 1 is for younger babies who do not crawl or are beginning to crawl. Side 2 is for babies who are experienced crawlers and walkers. A ratio of 1 staff member per 3 children is maintained at all times. Feeding and nap schedules are individualized based on the baby, and open communication between parents and the teachers is emphasized to ensure that each child’s needs are met.

Whenever the infants are not eating, sleeping or being changed, they will be in the play area. This is an exciting place to be. Babies learn new skills so quickly. Different small motor, large motor, social, language, and individual developmental activities are conducted each half hour throughout the day. A wide variety of toys are available and our staff are constantly devising new and stimulating play experiences for your child, including age-appropriate art and sensory experiences.

Throughout the day, the infants receive many hugs, kisses, cuddles and smiles. We understand their need for love and affection and take pride in our role in helping shape their desire to discover, learn and grow.
