This month infants will be focusing on social studies and science. In social studies, the children will gain an awareness of how they relate to their families and friends. We will reinforce this through their family cards and pictures. Infants will also learn to plan and carry out investigations and collect, evaluate and communicate information. For example, using pop up toys, will encourage the children to investigate what will happen next.
