Infant Program

 

Our infant program is personalized to meet each child’s individual needs.  Feeding, napping and diapering take place on an as needed basis.  Activities, both inside and outside are developmentally appropriate and planned to encourage exploration and stimulate curiosity.  Inside activities include many art and sensory explorations.  Outside activities include strolls, swings and exploring the environment.  Our goal is to help your infant feel safe, secure and comfortable, thus enabling him/her to form positive relationships with other children, adults and the world around him/her.
