6 months-12 months
The Explorers room is all about…exploring! Between 6-8 months your child is going to want to know everything about their environment. They will use their senses to discover what things are and how they work! The teachers in this room will foster your child’s discovery by offering different textures, sounds, and toys for your child to explore! The children use their hands to understand texture changes, their sense of hearing to differentiate mood and begin to socialize, their sight to understand facial expressions and their environment, and last but not least their mouths to taste everything! They will spend time snuggling and conversing with caregivers, learning through books with verbal stimulation, and working on physical development through one on one interactions with teachers and alone. The children undergo a time of rapid physical development in this room. They typically move into this room sitting up and grasping toys. When the children leave this room they have mastered crawling, pulling up to stand, and sometimes walking! Our caregivers will nurture your child in every way and aid your child in mastering new skills!
