Infant Program

Babies are born wanting to learn, like little scientists.

They explore and learn through all their senses even before they can crawl. Find out how you can encourage this learning by providing new opportunities for them to touch, taste, smell, grab and listen to the world around them in a safe and nurturing environment.

Right Experiences at the Right Time

Infants use all five senses to explore their world. At Primrose Schools, we make it easy-peasy for your baby to develop and grow, building one skill upon another.

Right away, your infant starts creating a solid foundation for optimum development.

Early Learning Domains

 

Approaches to Learning

Each child learns in different ways. The Primrose Balanced Learning® approach provides teachers with the tools and guidance to accommodate children’s natural curiosity and to fully support each child while building problem solving skills and confidence.

 

Science & Engineering

Children are natural scientists. They use their senses and special technological tools to observe and investigate their world, recording and analyzing their findings through writing, drawing or taking photos.

 

Language & Literacy

The early years are critical for literacy development. From sign language and story time in younger classrooms, to phonics and eventually reading and writing in our older ones, your child develops important literacy skills and a love of reading.

 

Creative Arts

Visual and creative arts stimulate imagination and creative thinking. In our proprietary Primrose Early Art Masters™ program, children discover early and contemporary artists and practice their techniques in their own masterpieces.

 

Physical Development

Active children become active adults. We show your child fun ways to practice proper techniques for movement, balance and motor skills with plenty of time to slide, climb and run on our age-appropriate playgrounds.

 

Math

Early experiences with math help children develop reasoning skills, inventiveness and persistence in problem solving. Our math program introduces numbers, measurement and patterns through hands-on learning.

Basic scientific concepts and science process skills begin to develop as early as infancy.

Our Infant program nurtures Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®

Throughout the day, you will see Infant teachers talk and sing with your child during feeding, diapering and playtime. This interaction helps your baby begin to understand language and conversation. Our staff pays close attention to all aspects of your child’s development. Here are some examples of experiences that will captivate your baby in the Primrose Infant program.

Og’s Story Time®

Babies snuggle up to teachers while they enjoy simple picture books together. Reading aloud with infants is an important first step for language and literacy.

Sign Language

Your child learns to communicate basic wants and needs using sign language. Parents receive their own set of signing cards to continue “conversations” at home.

Rhythm & Notes®

Your baby wiggles, dances and lights up with the music from our Rhythm and Notes program. Engaging with our music at school and at home also enhances your child’s brain development. The dance party continues anywhere you go with the PrimMusic app we provide to you.
