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 girls for all your continual dedication to the children. I love how much Cora loves being at school and learning all that she is learning there, as well I love that I feel so comfortable while she is there at school. The pictures during the day keep a smile of my face, THANK YOU!!!"

Learning at Home

Puppetry with Infants and Toddlers

You Will Need:

Colorful puppets, either purchased or homemade (make sure they don't have small pieces that might come off and create a choking hazard).

Directions:

Look into the eyes of your baby, hold the puppet on your hand and have the puppet softly touch and sing or talk with your baby. Wait for your child to make sounds or words back and then continue the "conversation."

Tip:

Use the puppet as a fun way to encourage language.
