INFANT: Infant part time care is available based on enrollment.
Our infants are learning everything for the first time. We work to help them learn their first words, their first steps any maybe first smiles. The infant room is a closed setting so that the crawling or walking infant can explore with no worries of getting hurt. For our younger infants there are plenty of age appropriate toys for them to learn from. Our teachers strive to give every infant a little bit of me time as often as possible. The curriculum will help with social, emotional, literary, and physical skills.
