Warm & Responsive Care
Infants learn through everyday experiences with warm and responsive care from teachers in the classroom. Each teacher is a primary caregiver to specific children in the room. They partner with parents to create a schedule that compliments and supports what happens at home and makes their day at MKCCC feel safe and secure.
Highlights of MKCCC’s Infant Program
Loving and caring environments that are an extension of home.
We communicate with families regularly to maintain partnerships and to build trusting relationships.
Daily opportunities are provided to encourage social/emotional development, speech and language, cognitive growth and to support fine and gross motor development.
We use basic sign language to encourage even our youngest children to express their wants and needs.
