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

What’s That Sound?

You Will Need:

Common household items that can be used to make sounds: a ball, pencil, glass, etc.

Directions:

Use an object to make a sound, such as bouncing a ball, tapping a pencil on a glass, running water, or clicking your fingers. Say to your child, “Can you guess what is making that sound? Is it a ball? “; “Do you want to hear it again?”; “That’s a ball bouncing.” As your child gets older, have her tell you what is making the sound.

Tip:

This activity can be done anywhere, anytime. If your child is getting restless in the car, this activity may soothe her. New sensations attract attention and making new noises stimulates curiosity and language development. It is through early conversations that infants’ language capacity grows.
