Our Infant program accommodates 10 children, aged 3 months to 18 months. Our programs are very popular, so APPLY early.
Our schedule is based on the needs of each individual child. Children may sleep and eat when they require it throughout the day.
A typical day in the infant room consists of (although no two days are ever the same!):
|7:30am-8:30am||Morning arrival and greeting time|
|8:30am-9:15am||Snack time - milk is served
Sleep time for those who require a nap
|10:00am-11:00am||Outside time - going for a walk or playing in the yard|
|11:00am-11:30am||Sensory or planned programming or circle|
|12:30pm||Sleep time - for those who require a nap|
|2:30pm||Programming and creative art|
Infant Program Teacher Bios:
My name is Sherry. I am a former CCCCG employee and very proud to be back at the centre after being a stay at home mom for the past 14 years. In that time I also had a successful home daycare business. I am excited to be back as a full time RECE in the Infant program.I look forward to working with the children, parents and staff. I live in Guelph with my husband of 17 years and we have a 14 year old son. I spend a lot of my time with family and friends when I am not at work. I also enjoy travelling to watch my son play rep. basketball.
Katrina, Infant Teaching Assistant
Hello! My name is Katrina and I am the Afternoon Teaching Assistant in the Infant Room. I have worked at CCCCG since April 2017 while also earning my Bachelor of Applied Science in Child, Youth, and Family at the University of Guelph. I will be graduating with my qualifications to be an RECE in 2020. I love working with children and supporting them in learning experiences because they are so curious and eager to explore the world around them. I strive to be a nurturing and encouraging educator to best support children’s development in all domains. I love reading, doing art, and being outdoors with the children!
Rachel - Infant Teaching Assistant (no photo available)
My name is Rachel. I started in March 2015 as a Teaching Assistant in the Infant program at CCCCG. Although my background is in the Arts, I have been surrounded by children my whole life. I have a wonderful family full of 8 nieces & nephews varying in age from 1 to 10 years old. This is where my love of children grew. I love doing arts and crafts with the children and allowing their individual creativity to flow. Watching the children learn and grow through the past year has been a very rewarding experience.
Hello! My name is Carolyn Boily, but at work I go by “Lyn”. I attended the University of Guelph, graduating in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Child, Youth and Family studies, as well as my ECE. Having watched my mother work in the school system growing up, I discovered very early on that I wanted to work with children as well. I have been working and volunteering in child and family settings ever since high school, including schools, Early Years centres, Girl Guides and various theatre / Renaissance Festival events. I started as a supply staff at CCCCG in 2017, and now spend half my day in our Infant Program, and the other half in our Senior Preschool Room. Bouncing between the two age groups can be very busy, but it has been a great opportunity to experience how children’s learning develops as they grow! I love reading, dramatic play and look forward to helping each child develop resiliency skills and their own, unique, sense of self!
My name is Nikcole. I received my Early Childhood Education diploma from Conestoga College in April of 2014. I joined the CCCCG centre in September 2014. I love working with children and being their partner through their developmental journey. I strive to create an environment where the children can feel free and safe to explore. It's my belief that children learn best when they are given opportunities that allow them to explore their interest or the wonders that they may have. At the end of it all building strong relationships with the children and their families is important to me in order to support the children along their journey.
