Our Schedule

Bambini has been established as a child development center to provide superior child care for children of working parents. Its goals are to be responsive to the emotional, social, intellectual and physical needs of infants and children in a safe, clean and supportive environment.

Our program is unique from the innovative architectural design to meet the ever-changing needs of the children. Although our curriculum and schedules are structured, the daily activities are creative and flexible to meet the developmental levels of the children in each group. Bambini utilizes a specially designed curriculum to teach Spanish to infants, toddlers and young children. Please refer to the section "Our curriculum" for further information.

Daily schedules provide a balance of activities that include: play (manipulative, imaginative, gross/fine motor development) creative arts, language development, music, literature, science and math. The children in our program are divided in the following age groups:

  • Infants (3 months to 12 months)
  • Young Toddlers (12 months to 24 months)
  • Toddlers (24 months to 36 months)
  • Preschool Children (36 months to 60 months)

Daily Activities

Bambini will display outside each room a weekly plan of your child's activities. Teachers will list highlights of your child's day. Parents should feel free to express their concerns at all times. Teacher-Parent communication is essential in maintaining an accurate account of your child's daily needs.

Parent/Teacher Activities

Classroom meetings will be held with your child's teacher twice a year to evaluate your child's developmental progress. If during the course of the year you have a special concern, a conference time will be made available. Parents are always encouraged to become an active participant in their child's experience at Bambini by spending time at the center.
