In all classrooms we encourage an atmosphere of love and warmth, a peaceful environment, consistency, flexibility and choice. Children are empowered to explore and experiment.


Our infant program provides guidance for infants aged 2 through 10 months. The daily schedule is programmed according to the needs of each individual child.

Since our infants have a wide developmental range, they are encouraged to learn about their world through individualized curriculum that invites exploration and celebrates each milestone. The children are introduced to activities that encourage social, cognitive and physical development such as musical instruments, books, manipulative toys, puppets, soft blocks, balls and singing.


CLASSROOM

Our infant classroom is a secure and inviting space that is limited only to infants, teachers and parents. The infant room is the only classroom that is separated from other classrooms to ensure a safe, quiet and clean space for infants to socialize, rest and play.  The classroom's abundant windows allows access to natural light and overlooks the toddler playground so that infants can observe toddlers at play.
