Our Infant Program

An exceptional place for your baby

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 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.

"The staff in the center is so warm and welcoming. It is comforting leaving my son there especially when life throws unexpected changes that drive the need for back up care."

Our Curriculum Components

Engaging opportunities for play and discovery.

  • Language Works Listening to stories or classical music, one-on-one spoken interaction with caregiver.
  • Math Counts Counting through books, poetry, and songs.
  • Science Rocks Bubble blowing, interacting with nature through walks and outdoor exploration.
  • ArtSmart Finger (or feet) painting, experiences with textiles.
  • Our World Rich connections — via smiles and hugs — with the center community.

Learning at Home

Shake, Rattle, and Roll

You Will Need:

Music, plastic containers with lids (clear are preferable), small items such as corks, spools, etc. (but large enough so they’re not a choking hazard -- use a “no-choke tube” to test if you aren’t sure).

Directions:

Put the small items in the plastic containers. Play music and interact with your child by shaking, rattling and rolling the containers. Encourage your child to put the small items in the containers himself. Talk about the different sounds you hear. Introduce words such as “shake” (say, “Let’s shake the container”), “rattle” (say, “The corks are rattling inside the container”), and “roll” (say, “Let’s roll on the ground with the container”).

Tip:

Try different objects in the containers and compare different sounds. Toddlers might dance with the containers. 

What Your Child Can Learn:

  • Competence (“I can make this happen.”)
  • Cause and effect (“When I shake this, it makes a sound.”)
  • Vocabulary words such as  “shake,” “rattle,” and “roll,” 
  • How to identify the items in the containers
  • Discrimination between different sounds
  • Fun is a shared event
