Our Infant Program

An exceptional place for your baby to thrive

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.

"Thank you very much for your hard work and dedication to caring for children. We can't tell you how much it means to us to have a safe, loving, nurturing place for our son to grow and play while we are at work. It is obvious that all of you care for the children and enjoy your work. Thank you."

Learning at Home

Sound of the Day

You Will Need:

Nothing!

Directions:

Choose a sound that you have heard your child babble frequently. Repeat this sound many times during the day, using it in words, songs, or babbling it yourself. For example, “Ba” is a common early sound – sing “Bah Bah Black Sheep,” play with a ball, sit in a box, drink from a bottle, etc. Stress the sound as you talk about what you are doing during the day.

Tip:

Babies under 6 months respond to a high-pitched voice. By 4 months, they are noticing the individual sounds you make and repeating them often. They are learning how vowel and consonant sounds are used together. For children over 6 months, avoid using “baby talk” but make your voice very rhythmic. After 6 or 7 months, your child may make a game of imitating your sounds of speech.
