Our primary goal is to provide a nurturing, safe, and trusting environment for our infants. Relaxing music is played, and babies are carried frequently by teachers who interact with them. Attentive, loving adults always talk to babies especially during routines. They are gentle and respond quickly to baby’s activities and cries. In addition, teachers strive to develop self-help skills with each baby.
Because infants eat and sleep on demand or per their own individual routines, the schedule below is approximate.
All of our centers practice ‘Safe Sleep’ and are blanket-free for children under one year.
