Joni's Child Care & Preschool programs accept children 6 weeks of age and older. The infant program seeks to create a balance between personal care and developmental stimulation. Children are fed, changed and napped according to individual schedules. Throughout the day teachers talk and sing with each child to encourage language development and to monitor hearing. They use balls, mirrors and other toys to encourage movement. The teachers hold each child frequently, using soft toys for cuddling and hand-held toys for fine motor development. Classrooms are arranged to allow for large spaces for stretching, rolling and crawling. Varied activities are used to help strengthen back, neck and arm muscles.
