infants

Our infant rooms are designed to create a warm and loving environment with well trained staff to help meet the needs of your child.

We follow a daily schedule provided by you to ensure a comfortable transition from home to our center. Our teachers create a trusting and safe environment to meet babies' social, emotional, physical, and cognitive needs. Each child is given individualized attention with their crib labeled just for them. Our teachers communicate with parents through a detailed report daily through an app. This report goes over baby's feeding, sleeping, diapering, and developmental growth. Our classrooms provide an active learning environment with a wide variety of materials for infants to explore and play at their own pace.
