Classroom overview

In our infant classrooms, we focus on your baby’s needs and providing a safe and consistent environment for your baby to grow and learn. Fundamental to your baby’s care is a deep trust in his or her primary caregiver which we actively nurture. Our infant classrooms are set up to help your baby feel attuned to the caregiver, develop fine and gross motor skills, begin language development, and be creative and curious. Our approach to caring for infants and toddlers is based on the principles of infant specialist Magda Gerber.

To foster your child’s healthy development, Child's Day supports:

  • Deep bonding between your child and their caregiver to foster a beneficial, trusting attachment.
  • Belief in your child as an initiator, an explorer, and a self-learner.
  • An environment for your child that is physically safe, cognitively challenging, and emotionally nurturing.
  • Time for uninterrupted play.
  • Freedom to explore and interact with other children.
  • Involving your child in all care activities to allow your child to become an active participant rather than a passive recipient.
  • Sensitive observation of your child in order to understand his/her needs.
  • Consistent, clearly-defined limits and loving expectations.

Teacher Profile

Jatavia Thornton lead teacher

I have worked with a wide range of children aging from infancy to 13 years old, but my favorite age group has been infants and toddlers. Children so many big milestones during this time and watching them grow and progress is always exciting. My main priority is to ensure that every child feels welcome, safe, and loved.
