Woodlyn Academy provides an academic, caring, and safe environment for all infants; an extension of home. Woodlyn Academy provides care for infants ages 6 weeks through 16 months. Infants need to develop a bond with their caregiver through the establishment of a relationship built on trust, allowing brain development to occur within proper developmental timeframes. At Woodlyn Academy, infant teachers meet each child’s individual needs while assisting with the skills needed to develop cognitive, language, and social skills.
Infants given time to develop muscle strength needed for gross motor development through participation in tummy time activities. Teachers remain in consistent communication with infants throughout their day and read stories to develop language skills. At Woodlyn Academy, no cry goes unnoticed. Teachers are trained to teach and detect infant communication signals through the use of infant sign language.
The foundation of Woodlyn Academy’s program is built on a partnership between families and the school, a place where learning and development occur naturally. As a partnership between home and school, parent teacher conferences are held three times a year between teachers and the families of our infants.
