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

Learning at Home

Tippy Toe

You Will Need:

Your baby

Directions:

Tiptoe your fingers over your baby’s body: up her arms and legs, across her belly, etc. While tiptoeing, recite this poem: “Tippy Tippy tiptoe, off we go. Tippy Tippy tiptoe, to and fro. Tippy Tippy tiptoe, through the house. Tippy Tippy tiptoe, quiet as a mouse."

Tip:

By the time they’re four months old, babies are noticing the individual sounds you make and are learning how vowel and consonant sounds are used together. 

Babies under six months respond to a high-pitched voice. 

For children over six months, avoid using “baby talk” but make your voice very rhythmic.
