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.

Learning at Home

Cloud Gazing

You Will Need:

A blanket, a day with some fluffy clouds, and the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk

Directions:

Lie on your back with your child and gaze at the sky. Babies will enjoy the sensations of the wind, leaves rustling, and the connection with you. Toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy naming the clouds based on what they look like. You may need to start this activity by pointing out shapes and body parts like ears, noses, wings, etc. in the clouds.  Children may become curious about why there are so many different shapes, why they change, where they go when they disappear, etc. To prepare for these questions or to research after a gazing session, visit www.window.ucar.edu.

Tip:

Point out everything you see and hear while lying quietly: birds, airplanes, bugs, colors, etc.
