Our infant and toddler programs serve children ages 6 weeks to 24 months. This program provides a number of stimulating age appropriate activities, including art, music, songs, puppets, nursery rhymes and more. During this delicate phase of development, the stage is set for sound language and literacy development.  
 Along with all the fun and games, we use a state approved curriculum and researched based evaluations to assess your child's development. Through on going observations and assessments we are able to design a program to meet individual needs of our infants and toddlers. 
This program includes 3 different development groups Infant A (6 wks- 6 mons), Infant B ( 6-18mons) and Toddlers (18mons - 24 mons).
