Infant and Toddler Care

We provide care for infants as young as six weeks in a safe and nurturing environment that supports you and your baby’s schedules at home to minimize the transition between home and school.  We follow your lead and fully appreciate that you have entrusted us with the care of your child.  Low student/caregiver ratios allow for your child’s personal care in a home-like atmosphere. Activities are designed specifically for your child’s natural growth using developmental milestones as a guide during their first two years.
