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.

"Melissa has welcomed Isabella and our entire family into the Duckling room from the moment we met her. She has been kind, sweet, accommodating and loving to Bella every single day. She offers suggestions and listens to mine. Bella is thriving because of the care and attention she gives. <3"

Learning at Home

Sensory Bottles

You Will Need:

Empty clear plastic bottles (small water or soda bottles work great), rice, beans, small stones, feathers, small household items, masking tape.

Directions:

Fill a bottle up ¾ with one of the materials and seal it tightly with tape. Sealing it tightly is important because a baby can choke on a loose bottle cap. Play with your baby or toddler by rolling, shaking, and tapping the bottle. Explore the different sounds that the bottle makes. Talk about the colors and weights (heavy/light).

Tip:

If you see the tape starting to peel, fix it immediately. If you have a glue gun handy, you can also use that to attach the lid to the bottle. Infants may also enjoy watching water in the bottle that has been dyed with food coloring. Adding glitter or small confetti stars to the water can add interest, as well. Closely supervise – only allow your young child to play with the bottles when you are around.
