At the Burlington Children’s Space, we recognize that children of different ages have different needs from their classrooms and teachers. With this in mind, we organize our center into four spacious rooms that cater to our four age groups: Infants, Young Toddlers, Old Toddlers, and the Preschool. Each room features a fully-equipped kitchen space, two or more sinks for hand- and dish-washing, compost receptacles in addition to trash and recycling, blackout curtains for naptime, live plants, and of course lots of open room to play! Each classroom operates on a slightly different schedule according to the specific needs of the students, but classes often unite for activities such as outdoor time or walks.
Infant (“Baby Room”)
Our Infant Classroom provides care to babies from as young as 6 weeks to about 18 months. This room is mostly open, with soft mats on the floor to accommodate sitters, crawlers, and young walkers. You’ll find chew-friendly books, pillows and stuffed animals, mobiles, kitchen toys, trucks and ramps, and mirrors, all included to help our youngest students learn, thrive, and have fun.
The Young Toddlers and Old Toddlers classrooms are connected, jack-and-jill style, via a “Potty Path” and a large shared kitchen space. The Young Toddlers room is full of art supplies, puzzles, climbers, and train tracks designed to maintain these energy-filled students’ excitement to learn!
