Infant Program

(Six Weeks to 18 Months; full-time spaces only)

(1:3 or 3:10 ratio)

Our Infant Programs allow for a stimulating hands on environment. We adhere to the schedule of each individual child’s needs. Parents are required to fill out a Feed Sheet which specifies the high risk allergy foods that a child should not eat before the age of one. We closely monitor these high risk allergies foods by only serving the food that the child has had at home first. Any parental request or food intolerances/sensitivities can be accommodated with a variation. Parents or caregivers are required to supply formula, breast milk, and diapers. You will be given a Daily Communication Log which specifies any important information about your child’s day. We develop a program that focuses on the stimulation of the five senses, music, and fine motor skills. The Infant Program creates the flexibility that meets your child needs to feel safe and happy while they freely learn to explore and move about the room.
