September Infant Newsletter


Hello September~

We are excited to begin our fall curriculum! A warm welcome to our new students, Dax, Cruz, Quinn, and Emery. Daphne, Mackenzie, and Lily will transition to the toddler classroom. We will miss them, but they show signs of readiness for joining the toddler community!

Each week, the infants will focus on a different type of work. Lessons will be posted on the bulletin board outside our classroom and referenced in our weekly email. The weekly focus gives the infant teachers an opportunity to observe the babies working in a structured manner while watching the types of work they most enjoy. This month, we will focus on sensory work, language (colors and shapes), and gross motor skills. 

Learn to move, move to learn:
Babies need to move freely in a safe
place. When babies are allowed to move
and explore on their own, they learn about
their environment and abilities. Babies
develop confidence and problem-solving
skills as they move, explore, and relate to
their environment.
— RIE Principal
