Infants

Learning and living through play!

For infants, learning and living are the same thing. Every moment in the classroom is a learning experience. Every Doodle Day includes sharing books with a caring adult, music, movement, indoor and outdoor play, sensory experiences, and plenty of language-rich snuggles, too. It’s important to note that curriculum is more than “activities” – curriculum is also interactions, relationships, caregiving routines, transitions, and more.

We promise families that we will follow the routine they have established at home, meaning that each child can and should eat, rest, and be cared for according to his/her personal needs. It is expected that caregiving routines are responsive and respectful, treating each child with courtesy and warmth.

Personalized schedules Daily routines (including sleep schedules and mealtimes) are individualized, based on parents’ preferences.

Nurturing interactions Warm, affectionate interactions help infants build positive relationships with adults.

Safe, clean, inviting classrooms Classrooms are designed to help babies feel comfortable and at home.

Learning through play Play-based learning experiences boost every aspect of babies’ development.

Science

Explore and discover.

Open-ended, hands-on, sensory play engages infants’ natural curiosity, encouraging creative expression, self-awareness, motor skills and language development.

Creative Arts

Express and create.

Painting, drawing and collage introduce children to colors, shapes, lines and textures. Musical experiences introduce rhythm, rhyme and melody, the precursors to conversation.

Wellness

Grow and thrive.

Feeding, diapering and other caregiving routines are unique opportunities to support babies' well-being; teachers also give thoughtful attention to helping build age-appropriate physical skills, like sitting up, crawling, and walking.

Math

Think and solve

Blocks, toys, songs and books are coupled with meaningful interactions with caregivers to introduce early math concepts and "math talk."

Language Arts

Speak and share.

Through songs, stories and caregiving routines, teachers model language and introduce vocabulary, demonstrate conversation and provide nurturing responses to infant and 1-year-old cues.

The Fun Never Stops!

There’s always something fun going on at Doodle Bugs! Children’s minds and bodies stay active with a variety of activities that make the Doodle Day even more interactive. Participation in enrichment activities varies by program.

   
Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do helps children to develop balance, coordination, confidence and positive feelings and fitness and physical activity.

   
Doodle Dance & Fitness

Dancing teaches free self-expression and nurtures an early love and understanding of music and rhythm. It’s just one of the fun, exciting ways for children to exercise throughout the Doodle Day.

   
Yoga

Yoga helps children develop social skills, focus on the present, and slow down their thoughts, in addition to increased coordination and flexibility. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and acceptance through exercise in a non competitive, fun atmosphere.
