INFANTS & TODDLERS

This is an exciting time in the life of your family, and we are happy to be apart of it. The goal of the infant and toddler programs are to provide a safe, loving environment in which the child can attach to and bond with the teacher. From the safety of this relationship, the child can then confidently begin to explore his/her abilities. Each classroom is filled with materials to stimulate all of the child's senses; vision, hearing, touch, taste, and smell.
