The Infant Program cares for children 8 weeks to 15 months. We have 2 infant rooms on-site.
We provide a loving and nurturing environment staffed by special people who understand the needs of infants. At this stage of development, infants are deciding if the world is a place to be trusted. By consistently meeting their physical and emotional needs, we show our babies that adults are dependable. Through our response to their cries, body language, or early verbalization, they learn that the world is a safe, predictable, and trustworthy place. Through the use of age‑appropriate toys, they learn basic facts about the world and about their ability to have an impact on it. Our infants are talked to, held, and carried. They are kept clean and well fed. We want each baby entrusted to our care to thrive and flourish, and we do everything we can to make sure that they do. Our days include group activities, music and story time, art projects, and one-on-one time with each child.
