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."

Learning at Home

Peek-A-Photo NEW

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.
