Welcome to our Infant Room! Our goal is to provide a safe and loving environment for your baby. Our desire is to care for infants in a warm and affectionate way to let them know that he/she is a special person, including the physical affection and cuddling that is so important at this stage of development.
We provide opportunities for exploring, learning and social interaction through a variety of daily activities such as:
Story Time: Read stories and engage in finger plays to promote language skills.
Music Time: Singing songs in English and Spanish using scarves and musical instruments to dance/move around with are used for music activities.
Carpet Time Activities: Activities include tummy time, grasping and reaching activities, rolling, crawling and balancing activities to encourage small and large motor skills.
Feeding Time: Feeding includes cuddling, talking and rocking during bottle feedings and introduction of new foods (parents will provide) when they begin to eat.
Sensory Activities: Sensory play using water, sand, feeling different textures and other sensory ideas.
Outdoor Time: Includes stroller rides around the school and if weather permits it, outside time in the playground.
Hello! My name is Patricia Vazquez, but everyone calls me Ms. Patsy.
I am happily married and have one son and 3 grandchildren, who are my pride and joy.
I am the lead teacher in the Infant Room and have 10 years experience working with infants prior to this year. I also worked as the lead teacher for 3 years in the Early Toddler Room.
I am a loving and caring person that likes to make a positive difference in children's lives. I've enjoyed working at Peace Lutheran Preschool and Daycare for 13 years and greeting parents each morning. My priority at PLPD is for our children to learn and develop in a safe and caring environment.
I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting new school year!
God bless you all,
Ms. Silvia Gutierrez
My name is Silvia Gutierrez, I am the teacher assistant for the infant and toddler classes this school year. This is my thirteenth year working at this wonderful school. I’ve been fortunate to work with various ages from infants to the after school program with the elementary students during the time that I’ve worked here.
I’ve always enjoyed helping others and watching the children learn and grow. Being able to be part of a child’s life and making a positive impact is truly an amazing feeling.
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy walking, reading, and cooking. I grew up in Southern California and have a son and a daughter. They are my heart and my strength. I have decided to make early learning my life’s work because I believe a child’s education is the most valuable thing in the world.
With that being said I look forward to a wonderful school year working and growing with your child!
