Infants

Give your little one a big advantage at The Children's Center

Your child learns so much in the early years; the first years are a critical time for learning and social development.

Our teachers provide an unparalleled level of interaction
and individual nurturing through their daily activities.
The infant curriculum includes:

  • Lessons geared to the infant's level of development

  • Experiences that involve all senses

  • Fun activities that boost language and communication skills as well as physical development

 

All infant rooms are staffed at a 1:4 ratio.
