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.

"Dear Ms. Maricel - Laura loves preschool so much! Thank you for being such a great teacher and making school so much fun for her. Love, Megan & Laura"

Learning at Home

Oatmeal Roll

You Will Need:

Empty oatmeal box, small items that fit inside

Directions:

Put items such as a ball, rattle, pasta, or any small toy into the box and put on the lid. Sit on the floor with your child and roll the container to him. Ask, “What is making that noise? What do you think it is?” and open the container. Older toddlers will open it themselves and enjoy putting different items in it. Talk about what fits and what doesn’t. Say things like, “Will the pillow fit in the box? Let’s try. No, that’s too big, what else can we try?”

Tip:

Be as silly as you can in guessing what will fit. The answers are not obvious to babies like they are to us.
