One of the primary goals of the Kayfield Academy Crawler program is transitions. In the crawler program, everything we do is centered around preparation for toddler programs. While the crawler program shares much of the same curriculum as the infant room, there are major differences.
Once your child is able to sit unassisted, she will move into our crawler classroom. Our crawler curriculum provides a scheduled environment to allow the children to prepare for the toddler classroom. During your child’s time in our crawler area, your child will experience so many new things from crawling to standing up on their own then on to cruising then walking. Your child will transition from baby food to table food and so much more. The teachers form and implement lesson plans to prepare your child for their next step at Kayfield. Daily communication is prepared for each child to inform the parent of the child’s eating and sleeping habits.
In the Crawler program, you child must be able to sit on their own. We will begin to build core and leg muscles to work toward walking, move from baby food to table food and we will begin working on social skills of sharing and knowing their own space. Additionally, in the crawler room, we will begin using basic sign language for please, more, and thank you.
Kayfield Academy’s crawler program was created as a transition between our infant program and toddler program. Many schools have no such transition, but we have found that most children benefit from a slow and calculated transition between infancy and the challenges of being in a toddler class. That’s why so much of the focus in this class is placed on getting our little crawlers ready for the toddler program.
We want to thank you, our supportive and caring parents, for making Kayfield Academy the top rated school in Kentucky.
