Our Infant and Toddler Program are based on the principle that young children learn best through direct hands-on experiences with people, objects, events and ideas. They want to learn how things work. Our infants and toddlers are encouraged to discover the world around them by exploring and playing. They learn to develop relationships with adults and other children, thereby fostering a sense of security and trust.The infant and toddler classrooms are arranged in areas organized around specific kinds of play and care. For instance, there is a movement and play area, a sleep and relaxation area, an area for meals, diapering, music and a story time area. There are plenty of discovery materials to stimulate the senses and promote learning. Our bright and cheerful rooms have lots of natural light.
