Two of our centers provide infant classrooms of 12 children each: 24 total. Our teacher to child ratio is 1 to 3. We offer:
- Personalized care
- Individualized meal, sleeping and active play
- We follow the Program for Infant/Toddler Caregivers’ philosophy.
Primary Caregiving: In order to build close, caring relationships, each child has a primary caregiver who responds to basic needs such as feeding, toileting, napping and comfort.
Small Groups: Our group size is: 12 infants, 12 toddlers and 12 two-year olds. For children under 18 months, we have 1 staff for every 3 children and for children 18-36 months we have 1 for every 4 children.
Individualized Curriculum: Each child has an individualized plan for eating, toileting, sleeping, and developmental needs.
Continuity of Care: Children are transitioned to the next group when they are ready. The PITC philosophy recommends keeping children with their primary caregiver as they progress through the program. This helps maintain connections with children and families. Young Horizons has implemented this policy for children up to age three (3).
The Toddler Program is for children between the ages of 18 months and 30 months. Parents will be advised when their child is ready to transition to the toddler classroom. The infant care program will obtain written permission from the child’s authorized representative for the placement of the child in the toddler program. The child will be given ample time to visit the toddler classroom to become familiar with the environment and caregivers.
“I was looking for affordable childcare close to my home. Young Horizons has a positive and safe atmosphere. They have helped my 6yr old to read and my one year old to be more social.”
