Crawlers and new walkers
(age 8-18 months)

Mobile infants are active, enthusiastic explorers who are in love with the world around them. Crawling, cruising, walking and practicing their other new skills occupy them. At Dogwood Hills Academy our specially designed play areas, both inside and outside, encourage these activities.

Increased mobility also gives these older infants a new strategy for regulating their emotions by actively seeking out comfort and protection from their teacher.

At Dogwood Hills Academy our low teacher to child ratio, soothing environment and consistent routines established by the family, teachers and child allow for each infant to grow and develop at their own pace. Our daily reports inform parents of the older infant’s play, feeding and diapering activities. Our nationally recognized curriculum and assessment program allow for specific development planning for each child as an individual and as part of the group.
