About The Infant Program

At Color Us Kids, our staff provides the caring and responsive interaction that babies need for healthy growth and development. Our infant program allows your baby to develop at his/her own pace in a rich and nurturing environment with our low teacher-to-infant ratios. Meal and nap times are determined by each infant’s unique needs and schedule.
Our clean, bright, and safe atmosphere encourages babies to explore their surroundings to stimulate emotional, physical, social, and cognitive growth. Through activities that emphasize visual, tactile, and aural stimulation, infants thrive in our comfortable and friendly environment.

Daily Schedule

The infant classroom presents many opportunities for stimulating and nurturing babies growing minds and provides each child a chance to rest and recharge. Young infants determine their schedules- there is no such thing as a “typical day” in an infant classroom! As your child grows, we guide them toward a more structured and organized schedule to provide consistent feeding and rest times.

Our Curriculum

When children investigate, discover, and play — they learn.

Color Us Kids Learning Centers utilize The Creative Curriculum® in all classrooms. The Creative Curriculum® is the nations’ leading scientifically-based curriculum for schools educating children from birth to age five and is approved for use by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.

Our Approach

Studies show that a whole-child approach to education, where children can develop literacy and math skills combined with social-emotional, physical, and cognitive skills, is more developmentally appropriate and better prepares children for success.

The Creative Curriculum® is one of the most widely used pre-K curricula in the nation. It’s research-based and comprehensive and features exploration and discovery as a way to educate.

The resources provided help teachers create high-quality learning settings and understand early childhood education best practices. This allows our educators to make every moment of the day meaningful and engaging.

The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is…
  • Rated higher than any other Pre-K curriculum
  • Proven to enhance kindergarten readiness
  • Inclusive, supporting every child
  • Academically solid and promotes social-emotional development
  • Aligned with the state of Georgia early learning guidelines and the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes
Goals for Development and Learning

The Creative Curriculum® helps us plan a developmentally appropriate program that promotes children’s social-emotional development and education in the core areas of science, literacy, social studies, and mathematics. It combines the latest research and freshest ideas into an innovative approach to education, valuing creativity and recognizing the vital role that preschool teachers play in making learning relevant and exciting for all children in their classrooms.

The Creative Curriculum® individual approach is intended to inspire daycare teachers to create a quality learning atmosphere and to support their efforts as they open doors to successful learning.

Strategies to Support All Learners

Utilizing The Creative Curriculum®, our educators can design a complete method that supports positive outcomes for every child, including advanced learners, children with disabilities, and English-language learners. The Creative Curriculum® is based on five key principles, including:

  • Social-emotional skills are an important part of school success.
  • Positive relationships and interactions with adults contribute to a strong foundation for learning.
  • Purposeful, constructive play promotes fundamental education.
  • The atmosphere affects the type and quality of learning interaction.
  • Teacher-family partnership promotes education and development.

We know that our classroom environment affects individual children, preschool teachers, and the group as a whole, which is why we strive to provide an atmosphere that is safe, comfortable, and well-designed to help children engage in educational activities.

The Creative Curriculum® includes interest areas that are excellent for children to create, explore, experiment, and pursue their interests. The Creative Curriculum® classroom has established learning areas for block building, pretend play, art, toys and games, reading, writing, sensory play, discovery table, music, and cooking activities.

Our Daily Lesson Plans

Each Lead Teacher creates weekly lesson plans within The Creative Curriculum® tailored to their students’ development needs and interests. We incorporate a weekly theme, a shape, a color, numbers, a letter, singing, counting, outdoor play, small group, and large group. Some weekly theme examples include:

  • All About Me
  • Outer Space
  • At the Zoo
  • Under the Sea
  • Let’s Get Cooking
  • Juicy Fruits
  • Colors of the Rainbow
  • Dinosaurs
  • Good Hygiene
  • Spring has Sprung
  • Let’s Fly a Kite
  • The Sun
  • My Feet & Hands
  • Salty things
  • Sweet things
  • My Five Senses
  • Dr.Seuss
  • And more

Throughout the investigation into each of these various topics, we concentrate on all areas of development, including language, physical, social-emotional, literacy, cognitive, science, the arts, math, technology, and social studies. Each lesson plan is created based on the children’s unique developmental needs in the classroom. Our daycare teachers continually observe and document each child’s development.

Our childcare teachers complete assessments several times throughout the year. The lesson plans are designed based on where the children are developmentally at each of these assessments. This ensures that our daily lesson plans are customized for our students’ individual needs.
