Our quiet, nurturing infant room provides care for infants aged six weeks to one year with the perfect secure learning and play environment. The children are invited to explore the room through movement, once they are able, to assist in stimulating their development. Our caring infant teachers follow the parent’s specific schedule for their infant, to ensure the child is provided with a stable and consistent daily pattern. Parents are to supply their child’s diapers, wipes as well as any other necessities the child may require. Each child has their own individual crib and we supply the linens to ensure safe fitting upon the mattress. Linens are changed every other day and washed in dye/fragrance free laundry soap for their gentle skin. Our lesson plans are created weekly to assist our infants in reaching those important development milestones. Along with verbal communication with your child's teacher, each baby receives a Daily Infant Report focusing on the child’s daily activities.
Our center has three toddler rooms, divided by age groups ranging from 12-32 months. Our toddler rooms invite children to experiment with movement, developing motor skills, learn thought processes, beginning language, and begin to develop social skills with others. Parents receives a report each day, focused on their eating, sleeping and bathroom habits, as well as other activities the child participated throughout their day.
