Welcome to Pooh's Corner
About Pooh's Corner
Pooh's Corner is our youngest class, open to children ages 6 weeks to approximately 12 months. We have a motto with our babies: spoiled is okay - spoiled rotten is bad! We love to hold and sing to our babies. Some centers move the children to a new room as soon as they are 12 months - not us. We keep our babies in the infant room until they begin to walk. This gives them the opportunity to learn how to walk confidently without fear of being knocked over by bigger children.
Meet Our Teachers
Alyona Korbut (Aly) - Teacher
I joined DOT Tot in March 2016. After spending two years with the 1-year olds, I moved to the baby room. I love all ages but watching the babies grow in our year together is something special. They go through so many changes and I love being a part of that. Working with children became my dream when I was in 6th grade, and now I am 2 months away from being done with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I am fluent in Russian, and have taken a semester of sign language, which I really enjoyed.
Brittany Cook – Teacher
I joined DOT Tot in June 2019. I have been working with kids since 2012. I started at my daughters school as an assistant and really enjoyed it. I have also worked as a Paraeducator and a Nanny. I really enjoy working in the infant room. I love to see how the babies grow and develop. I look forward to applying what I have learned in college to the classroom atmosphere.
Anna – Nap Area Teacher
I joined DOT Tot in August 2019. I have been in the child care field since 2008 and enjoy working in the infant room. I have worked with different age groups, but the babies are my favorite group to work with. I have a BA in Child Development. I am very flexible. I felt "called" to DOT Tot and applied for a few different positions. I was extremely happy to be offered the Infant Nap Area Teacher Position and look forward to many years with DOT Tot.
This Month We Are Working On
This month the Pooh Room babies will be working fall songs. That includes leaves, colors, and rain. We will also be working on interactive finger plays, songs, and books.
