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 20 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 21 years and we have a 20year 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.
Ally - Infant RECE
Hello my name is Ally. I am an RECE and graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelors of Applied Science in Child Youth and Family Studies. I started off supplying at the center in 2017 and then moved into the Toddler program. I am now currently working full time in the Infant program. I love working with children and guiding them on their developmental journey. Each child brings such unique perspectives and ideas to the program. It is my goal as an educator to create an open, nurturing and engaging environment for all children.
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!
Hello! I’m Zabrina and I am an RECE in the Infant room. I graduated from Conestoga College in 2019 and started working at the centre in April. From a very young age I have discovered my love for working with children. I feel very happy and content being part of their lives. I am dedicated to the social and emotional development of every child and I would ensure that they receive all the care and love they deserve. Seeing children doing new things and experience their world is truly what I love to observe from them. I enjoy engaging in play, interacting and reading with the children. I also love when they teach me new things they can do!
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.
