Infants Inspire!

The infant program provides a warm, nurturing and safe environment where children receive the consistency and trust needed to help them form emotional bonds that are so crucial for their development.

Children in this room will:

  • play with age appropriate toys and classroom equipment designed to stimulate their cognitive, emotional and developmental growth.

Caregivers attend to each child's individualized schedule for bottle feeding, eating, diaper changing and naptime. If needed, time for breast feeding is also included in the schedule.

Parents/guardians are given a "Daily Gram" that details their child's day, which includes sleeping and eating patterns and any other necessary information that relates to his or her day.
