The environments are designed to stimulate growth and development of the individual child in a safe and caring environment. Care is given to infants in a warm, affectionate way to let each child know that he or she is a special person. Meeting the infant’s needs and promoting growth in areas of trust, brain stimulation and social relationships are key components of our infant program. The classroom also fosters those children who are just learning to cruise or walk but not yet ready for the faster pace of older toddlers. They are learning to become a bit more independent as they explore their new abilities in a safe and loving environment.
