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

Silly Songs

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

Create lyrics to any familiar tune, such as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Sing about what you see as you are driving, favorite toys or games, family members, bed time, etc.

Tip:

Repeat words often -- it makes songs easier to learn. Use nonsense words when you can’t think of anything else.
