Welcome to the Piglet Room!
Ages 6 weeks - 18 months

My name is Marilyn Feliciano, I am the infant classroom teacher and Ms.Tiffany and Ms.Virginia are the caregivers in our class. In the Piglet Class we follow a ratio of 1 staff member to every 3 babies. Our classroom’s enrollment is 9 babies, all of which have their own crib or cot assigned just to them.

One of our primary goals for the infants is to form a strong attachment between the baby and the primary caregiver. Each infant has a primary caregiver that devotes special attention to each child, including individual sleep and eating patterns for each child.

Our Piglets use Creative Curriculum to guide their days and lesson plans. This curriculum focuses on developmentally appropriate practices utilizing each child's strengths, needs, and areas of interest. The infant classroom is designed to promote the cognitive, communicative, sensory and motor development of each child. Our daily sensory activities such as water and sand activities encourage infants to explore through their senses and actions. Our art activities such as finger-painting and scribbling teach the infants to control small hand muscles and coordinate eye and hand movement. We encourage language and communication development throughout all activities where we teach the babies basic sign-language and pair the signs and gestures with the words. Our Piglets also enjoy walks to the park and around our neighborhood. If the weather permits we do take buggy rides daily and enjoy the great outdoors.

We hope to see you soon so you can share in all the fun and exploration we do every day.
