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!):
|7:30-8:30am||Morning arrival and greeting time|
|8:30-9:15am||Snack time - milk is served. Sleep time for those who require a nap|
|10:00-11:00am||Outside time - going for a walk or playing in the yard|
|11:00-11:30am||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 Sarah and I have been at CCCCG for 13 years in the infant room. I recently had my own little one and now coming back from maternity leave.
I graduated from Sheridan College with my ECE in 2007.
I love watching the children explore their environment through play and develop new skills each day. I look forward to building relationships with the children, parents and staff.
If I’m not running around after my little one I enjoy watching movies and relaxing outside.
Hello! I’m Zabrina and I am an RECE at CCCCG.
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 experiencing 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!
Hello! I am Dayani.I joined the CCCCG team in 2014 to explore if the ECE field fits me! Completing the ECE Fast Track Program at Conestoga College & graduating with distinction, I returned to CCCCG in 2015, while supplying at several other leading childcare centres in Guelph. I started regular hours in 2018.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to learn and grow with several age groups at the centre so far, thus opening the door for me to integrate my learning in early childhood education with the wealth of knowledge, skills and experience I have gained interacting with children, families and fellow educators since becoming a school teacher in 1997, serving the field of education in two other countries before Canada.
Children bring me immense joy. At the end of each day, I go home with a heart laden with their priceless gifts for me. I strive my best to bring them joy too, along with love, warmth, and learning.
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." ~ Albert Einstein

Olivia, Morning TA
My name is Olivia and I am the morning teaching assistant in the infant room here at CCCCG. I absolutely love working with your little ones and feel so grateful to be a part of their growth and development.
I've been supplying at CCCCG for about a year now, and it has been such a rewarding experience. As someone who hopes to pursue a degree in speech language pathology, I have found working with infants to be an amazing opportunity to observe their language development and understand their communication needs.
Every day at the daycare, I am greeted with bright smiles and endless energy from your little ones, which makes coming to work so enjoyable. I love to see the progress they make and the milestones they reach. It's amazing to see them go from cooing and babbling to saying their first words, and even forming sentences.
As a morning teaching assistant, I am responsible for ensuring that each child in the infant room is receiving the love and attention they need to thrive. I work closely with the other teachers to create fun and engaging activities for the babies, and to make sure that their individual needs are being met.
Being a part of the CCCCG daycare team has been such a wonderful experience, and I look forward to continuing to work with your little ones every day. Thank you for entrusting me with their care and giving me the opportunity to be a part of their growth and development.
