6 weeks - 15 months

The first months of a child’s life are crucial to their success. During this time, children learn and explore the world through touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound. Through our infant program, our teacher engages with each child in a responsive environment that reinforces the warmth, security, and love they are used to receiving at home. We also promote gentle play – encouraging the babies to explore their surroundings with their voices, hands, feet, and toes.

16 -  30 months

At this crucial age, children are forming social attachments and beginning to imitate their caregivers. Our toddler program places special emphasis on cultivating social bonds in a caring and supportive environment. New sounds and letters are introduced as children begin to understand and emulate language skills. Sensory activities are used to stimulate children’s interest and enjoyment of the world around them.
