Our unique approach to infant care is organized around the idea that during the first year and half of life a child needs to form healthy attachments with their primary care givers in order to establish a sense of security. Our lead infant teachers,  work as a team to provide individualized infant care. The programs run together but  separately in two rooms the goal is to create a "one classroom" feel where both caretakers provide care for all the children. Both teachers are full of love and are dedicated to creating environments that meets the physical, emotional, and social needs of the babies in their care. You will often find the infant teachers reading, singing, and talking with each baby. Our low ratios allows the teachers to form meaningful bonds with the child as they partner with each family in creating the perfect start for each infant.
