What does it mean to be secure?  Trusted, caring relationships and a safe, comfortable, interesting environment lay the foundation for our infants to enjoy new experiences and learn from our teachers.


Each infant’s care is structured based on daily communication with parents and the infant’s individual routine.  Through sensory and physical experiences both indoors and outdoors, our teachers stimulate and support each infant’s growth in laying a foundation of linguistic, cognitive, physical, social, and emotional skills at this critical stage of brain development.


The Infant Program serves children beginning at 1 month of age from 6:30am to 5:30pm.  See our infants’ daily schedule and further explore each of our curriculum areas and further explore each of our curriculum areas.
