Infants

Robin's Nest boasts the largest infant center in Southern Illinois offering 3 classrooms for varying ages and abilities of babies enrolled in our academic program.

Lesson plans, screenings and learning opportunities start at 6 weeks in our program! Check out our Facebook page to see this week's lesson plans in action in our classrooms!

Classroom Names

Mister Sea Horse: Newborn classroom- Crawling
House for Hermit: Crawling - New Walkers
Brown Bear: Crawling to Walking
Giving Tree: Walking well classroom (flexes between an infant/toddler classroom based on current enrollment & community need).

There is some variance of skills considered in these classrooms: The size of the child, the personality of the child, personalities of the group of children, special needs for feeding and other care giving routines as requested by parents or other physician recommendations & physical special needs that are identified through our screenings.

Curriculum within this age range

Lots of one on one love and trust building, contact with nature, tummy time, fine motor skills with sippy cups, utensils, paint brushes, crayons, manipulations of toys to make sounds or fit in puzzle boxes, dress up with a fun loving story to end any day with!
