Our Infant Atelier program consists of Reggio and RIE inspired developmental explorations for infants and time for parents to observe and reflect on their children’s interactions with trained child care specialist, Michele Plafchan. We view parents as partners, collaborators and advocates for their children beginning in our infant program through preschool. This program is the beginning of belonging in the Voyages Community. We engage in cultural trips, special events and study together in relationship for the strength of family and community. Our intention in the infant class is to offer you a breath of fresh air in a welcoming environment where you can have support to grow in wonder alongside your child and embrace this special moment in time as a family and as part of a circle of friends.
Infant Atelier is for children ages 6-12 months.
We meet once a week for 60 minutes on:
Wednesdays from 9-10:00am
Tuition: $120 per month
School year is from September through June.
(Weekday classes will start Jan. 2019 for 2018-2019 school year while our Mich is on maternity leave)
Material fee: $200 annually
“What a special introduction to Voyages and to the Reggio and RIE philosophies! Ida and I are so looking forward to tomorrow. I’m thinking about the idea of “making space.” Sitting in the infant room, I felt held in a space that allowed me to revisit and reframe my ideas I have in regards to mothering/parenting. I’ve read Janet Lansbury’s (RIE) blog and have listened to friends talk about Reggio — and I agree full heartedly with what is relayed. I know it to be true (for me and for my daughter at least). Being in the space that was so expertly held by Michele allowed those ideas room to blossom into action (or non-action). Our whole week was effected. It has been such a gift.”-Angeline
