Fine and gross motor skills, sensory skills, language development, and music development are included in the weekly lesson plan. Infants are introduced one on one to each of these skills as they develop at their own pace. Music is an important medium used in this room. Newborns are held and cuddled throughout the day, and the teacher talks and sings with each child on a continuous basis. Some American Sign Language signs are used to provide better communication between child and teacher. Gingerbread LittleVersity follows the Infant Safe Sleep Policy. This policy ensures that our babies sleep soundly on the back without any other interference in the crib. The baby is monitored and taken note of every 15 minutes until awakened.

We use a thematic curriculum in our childcare centers to enhance their curiosity and learning. Teachers work on gross motor skills, fine motor skills and lots of language development with the toddlers. Play centers are introduced in the toddler room so the children learn to interact in the dramatic play, block, gross motor, art and book centers. Two-year old's lesson plans include sensory development through creative art, everyday life development by learning self help skills such as washing hands and putting on coats/shoes, language development through books and songs, small hand-eye manipulative development through puzzles, and movement with music. Children also learn through block play, water play and outside play.
Teachers promote life skills by:
Learning Centers, Teaching table manners, Potty training, Encouraging social and language skills, Finger plays, nursery rhymes, and songs.
