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

Learning at Home

Commuting Game

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

As you are driving in your vehicle, ask your child to identify various items. For instance, ask her to find a bus, truck, flag, barn, McDonald's, etc. Once you approach the item, point it out and say, "I see the yellow bus." At first, focus on things that your child will easily recognize, then add a bit of a challenge. This game can also be played in a restaurant while waiting for a table or your food or anywhere else a toddler might have to wait. As your child gets better at this game, she might be able to ask you to find something.

Tip:

Show enthusiasm and change your vocal tones as you say different things.
