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.

"You brighten our day by taking the time to share what Lilly experienced each day. It's heart-warming to read what she responds to, what makes her smile and laugh, and the new activities you expose her to. Thank you for that extra touch of TLC!"

Learning at Home

Puppetry with Twos and Preschoolers

You Will Need:

Purchased or homemade puppets

Directions:

Talk and play with your child using the puppets. Make up skits, ask open-ended questions like, "Why do you think that happened?...How do you think she's feeling?...Why do you think she's sad?" Consider having a special puppet that you bring out at particular times like clean-up time or bedtime to assist with the routine. "Look, Fluffy is helping clean-up. Can you help Fluffy?"

Tip:

Puppets may be able to help a child begin to talk about feelings such as shyness, anger, joy, fear, etc. For example, you could have the puppet talk to your child saying something like, "Sometimes when I am sad, I feel like talking to someone. Do you want to talk to me?" However, don't use the puppet as a substitute for real interaction with your child, just as an opener to get talking started.
