Our Infant Program

An exceptional place for your baby to thrive

Our space is built for babies on the move: look for bright mirrors, warm rugs, sensory tables, great books, and baskets filled with soft, natural materials. There are musical instruments, toys for pretend play, safe equipment, and outdoor places to explore. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that our stringent safety, security, and cleanliness standards meet or exceed all state and local guidelines.

Even these youngest of children are encouraged to learn about their world through our individualized curriculum that invites exploration, celebrates each important milestone, and supports the transition from the sensory motor world of infancy to the increasingly social and self-directed world of toddlers.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"The happy smile our Cabbie has when he sees you is something that is truly special. The love and attention you give to him each day is something we will never forget. Thank you for doing everything that you do for him. The Medeiros Family"

Conversations with Babies

You Will Need:

A baby and someone to converse with her

Directions:

Look at your baby and talk with her during daily routines. Talk about body parts, identifying objects, daily events, and the people and places in her life. Explain what is happening, describe what will happen next or sing songs.

Tip:

Hearing lots of language in conversational tones is important to the development of langugage. Speaking in expressive tones and pitches provides opportunities for your baby to begin to differentiate sounds. If your baby babbles back, take turns, as if you are in conversation together (i.e. - You say something, your baby babbles back and then you say something again). This helps babies learn the give and take of conversation.
