Infants

 
 
 
6 weeks - 18 months
 
 
 
Our experienced teachers welcome you and your baby into a warm, safe, clean, low-ratio environment.
 
 
Our daily routine of holding, soothing, play, singing, and responding vocally are vital in developing the connection between teacher and your baby. Babies grow and change quickly, so consistent and frequent communication with parents is key. Teachers prepare daily detailed reports with your child's eating, sleeping, diapering and developmental activities. We value your thoughts about your child's development and encourage you to share these with us.
