The early months of life are crucial to healthy brain development. Babies need to be held, loved and encouraged to safely explore their world. That’s why we sing, read and talk to every baby and support development during this critical stage.

Infants are presented with educational activities that boost the brain, encourage first words, build strong bodies and help make new friends. 

Infants in our care will feed, nap and rest as needed. Because young infants are on a different schedule, our staff creates an individual infant activity plan for the younger children. Older infants are slowly introduced to routine and small group schedules.
 


Infants have a separate sleep area with individual cribs. A staff person monitors the sleep area, and the room plays white noise to help children sleep. The infant/toddler program also has its own playground so the children don’t share equipment with older preschool students. 


We monitor each child and determine when he/she is ready to transition from infant care to our wobbler room for infants who can crawl and/or walk. Then, we assess when wobblers are able to transition into our toddler program.

As your child grows into a toddler, he/she will learn age-appropriate social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills. Our toddler programs provide children with a group experience in a safe and nurturing environment.

Children complete activities as a group and have organized circle time where they sing songs, experience fingerplays, listen to stories and do arts and crafts, which include:

  • Finger painting
  • Watercolors
  • Stickers
  • Glue
  • Crayons
  • Chalk 
  • Other mediums

We make sure to give your child personal, individualized attention and make sure he/she gains these fundamental intellectual and social skills.
