Infant Child Care Program
“Making the decision to have a child, it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone
Our three infant classrooms are designed to allow plenty of opportunity for exploration, and our low teacher-child ratios (3-4 caregivers to 7 infants) facilitate sensitive and responsive relationships. Low shelves give infants independent access to their choice of toys, floor pads cushion young crawlers, climbing lofts build strong bodies and adventurous minds, and sleeping areas with individual cribs ensure restful naps. Age-appropriate infant equipment and manipulative toys enhance motor skills and intellectual curiosity. Infants remain in the same classroom for an entire year, promoting strong attachment with caregivers. Weather permitting, teachers take the children out on buggy rides and spend time in our garden courtyard to explore their natural surroundings and enjoy the fresh air.
Keeping your baby’s health and well-being in mind, we sanitize toys and equipment each day and visitors remove their shoes before entering the classrooms.
