Infant and Waddler Care


In our infant care, each caregiver knows the importance of forming a close relationship with their assigned children and his/her family. Daily written communication is given and we always encourage phone calls or visits.

  • Our ratio is 1:3 

  • All caregivers have infant experience and are CPR/1st aid certified 

  • Lead teachers are caring, experienced and trained in all aspects of infant care 

  • Children can start as young as six weeks old

As your child progresses, we create an environment that will build fine/gross motor skills, and cognitive development. We have a private deck area for the infants to play outside. Our indoor space allows infants to practice their gross motor skills. Our teachers make sure that each child is stimulated by organized activities such as art projects, games, songs and stories. Our caregivers stay with their children (as a class) until they turn three and move on to preschool. We believe that children under three years old have a better child care experience when there is a stable environment with the same caregivers.
