As early as six weeks old, your child can be welcomed into our Infant & Young Toddler classroom by a peaceful team of well-trained educators specialized in the development of children younger than age 2. These teachers strive to connect, predict and serve each child’s needs and temperament by following your child's natural rhythms, matching both your expectations and their constantly changing needs. Your infant or young toddler's needs will dictate the flow of their day with teachers adjusting accordingly to ensure all children thrive in this family-like setting.
Infants and young toddlers are steeped in a safe and secure environment, tailored to their age group, with a classroom set up as a second home—there are areas to explore, play, listen to books and sing songs. Teachers use rich language and a soft tone to narrate and explain each transition in the day, such as the changing of a diaper or the preparing of a bottle. Specially designed areas for eating promote the child’s freedom of movement and physical development. In place of high chairs, baby rockers allow the infant to be held when drinking a bottle and low weaning seats prepare the child for eating. There is table space for meal times, where teachers sit, assist and model for the children. Children are also able to rest when tired. Assigned, low beds are available to each child during restful periods of the day, and teachers use various soothing techniques to assure your little one receives necessary sleep.
