Our infant program is designed to provide a home-like atmosphere in which your baby can grow.

Infants will have a blast discovering the world at Oak Ridge Weekday School. Their senses will awaken as they play in the classroom and explore the outdoors on daily bye-bye buggy rides around the school.

  • As a ministry of Oak Ridge United Methodist Church, Christian beliefs are an essential component in the care we provide. Beginning with our littlest lambs, we believe in teaching Christ's love. Our infant room teachers read Bible stories daily, discuss God's beautiful creations all around them, and say the blessing with the babies before meals.
  • We maintain a low teacher-infant ratio so that your baby receives the most personal attention
  • Our infant room teachers bond with the infants to foster an atmosphere of security and trust. They provide opportunities for enjoying one-on-one cuddling and also provide special moments for learning through singing, talking, and reading. There is never a shortage of smiles, hugs, and kisses!
  • Each infant is led through a series of simple but fun daily exercises so that motor skills can also be developed.
  • Our classroom is set up to promote growth and development. We have soft, safe areas for rolling over, pulling up, creeping, and crawling. The infant room is full of soft toys, sensory toys, and wonderful books for holding (and chewing!). There are musical instruments, toys for pretend play, and many opportunites for infants to further their explorations through tummy time.
You will receive a daily report regarding your baby's personal care.
Open communication is key to helping your family stay informed while your baby is in our care.
Our daily report includes:
  • your baby's eating, sleeping, and diaper changing schedule
  • special moments recorded by your baby's teachers
  • notes regarding your baby's personal needs (i.e., your baby needs diapers)

We also keep assessment of your child's development. We create and implement monthly lesson plans to introduce new activities new activities and learning experiences. Lesson plans are posted in the classroom.
