Our infant caregivers are nurturing, loving, professionally trained in health, safety, and early child development milestones. We encourage our Moms and Dads to visit during the day, whether to feed their baby or simply to play with them. We strive to set the child’s schedule to remain consistent with their parents’ schedule at home.




 TODDLERS: (1 year - 2 years)

Our nurturing staff understands that caring for toddlers is about building relationships and making the most of everyday experiences and routines, while introducing a comprehensive curriculum. Toddlers learn through sensory experiences that enhance their cognitive, language, motor, and social skills. They begin to turn ideas into words and phrases to express themselves. Toddlers begin to practice the concept of sharing and cooperating through group play. Their days are filled with art, music, movement, and outdoor running and climbing. There is also quiet time for books and puzzles.


 TWO'S: (2 years - 3 years)

They are busy exploring their environment and learning to communicate their thoughts. They will learn to socialize with others and begin to take care of themselves independently. Just as importantly, they need to learn many new skills in thought processing and communicating. Our stimulating program encourages two year olds to develop their minds and bodies in a safe and healthy environment. By encouraging child-directed play, we ensure that your child develops at his own unique pace.
