copyrightInfant & Toddler Child Care - Daily Program (0 • 3 yrs)
Infant and Toddler Bright Start Day care Port CoquitlamOur infant and toddler daycare programs are designed with great care and thought. Infant and toddler educators, specialists in this age group, work in conjunction with our director to design activities that have specific goals relevant to your child's overall development.

This daily schedule is not "cast-in-stone"; it serves as a framework to provide a sense of consistency and security for children. It can be changed from time to time to suit the needs of a particular group of children and it also provides flexibility for special events, weather, and time of year or general interest level of the children. The infant and toddler programs both follow a ratio of 4 children per teacher; sometimes you will see an extra set of hands helping out during the busy lunch time.

Infants will start to transition Toddler program at any time between 16 - 24 mos, and Toddlers transition to the 3-5 yr program close to 3 years of age. Transitioning to a new program is based on various factors including maturity level and availability. In most cases, your child will be familiar with the teachers in the new program, as many of our staff often "visit" other classes.
