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.

"Lorraine and Marina have been absolutely amazing with my daughter. We came from a bad daycare experience and this has been hands down an amazing experience and we owe it to both of them. I am so grateful to both of them for making Mackenzies couple of days a week there comfortable, fun and easy!"

How Big is Baby?

You Will Need:

A baby

Directions:

Hold the baby’s hands and cross them across her chest. Ask, “How big is baby?” While raising her arms gently over her head say “Sooooo Big.” Do this over and over. Soon your child will be raising her hands by herself in response to your question.

Tip:

Hold hands gently and stretch her arms slowly. Smile, look into her eyes and exaggerate your words.
