Infant Program

We give your child individual, nurturing care and maintain routines.

Program Overview

Children approximately* 6 weeks to 18 months old are given individualized care. We keep them on their feeding and diapering schedules and provide one-on-one nurturing care during playtime with gentle rocking and singing.

For older infants, we provide educational toys and activities to enhance the development of hand-eye coordination, balance, and sensory awareness.  

 

Caregivers plan for each day, individualizing activities, materials, and schedules according to the routines of each child and his or her developmental stage. 

Infants are taken outside for walks on the property in our four-seater stroller.
