Infant Classroom

Designed with a ratio of 10 children to 2 teachers and a part-time teacher assistant, our infant classroom is for children aged 6 weeks to 18 months. Baby’s first year is an exciting time with lots of exploration and discovery. Engaging infants in interactive experiences that involve sensory, motor, and social explorations build brain connections. Children are actively engaged and stimulated through social interactions- talking, playing, moving, singing, reading, and signing. Activities are integrated across all domains of infant development- physical, emotional, social, and cognitive. They will participate in activities that encourage their emerging motor development, language and communication development, and social development. They also help to develop a wide variety of skills including- language acquisition, sense of self, sensory awareness, motor skills, visual tracking, self-help skills, and much more. Most of all, they will be cared for in a loving, safe environment where they are given every opportunity to thrive.
