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.

"It's been wonderful seeing Ramona grow and be more excited about school the time she spent in classroom I. You are always so friendly and welcoming, and obviously care about all the kids in the classroom. I was really happy you got to be one of Ramona's first teachers. Thank you!"

Learning at Home

Peek-A-Board

You Will Need:

Photographs of family members and friends, poster board and squares of fabric large enough to cover each photograph

Directions:

Glue six to eight photographs onto the poster board. Attach the pieces of cloth to the board by gluing along the top edge of each photograph (to hide each photograph). Say to your baby, “Let’s find Aunt Agnes,” then lift the cloth, and comment, “Oh, here she is!"

Tip:

Add more and different photographs as your baby becomes familiar with the game.
