Infants (3-12 Months)

Our child care providers expose infants to an array of stimulation to help them develop their sense of self. In addition to holding and cuddling the infant, our child care providers are always interacting with them to encourage their mental and physical development. They learn to grasp toys, sit up, vocalize sounds and other basic skills. The child care providers works with each infant in a series of stimulating activities that incorporate their regular routine of feeding and play. We reinforce the infant's development without disrupting their daily schedule.

Our child care providers allow toddlers opportunities to explore their surroundings. They also begin a more structured schedule and books, songs and activities are introduced to help children become comfortable with language and grow their vocabulary.
