Little Wonders

  • Infants (12 months to 18 months)

    This room welcomes baby’s starting at 12 months of age. Our older infants are precious and we have designed a loving, nurturing and creative world for them to explore their surroundings and help their minds and bodies develop. Babies start using high-chairs during feedings, they get individual attention and group play and hone their new walking skills while discovering the world around them.

    Music is also very important at this age, so we play soothing music for nap time along with familiar tunes that they learn to recognize at other times throughout their day. Sign Language is also introduced as a way to communicate before they have developed their language skills.

    Our rooms are designed to make babies and parents feel safe, secure, and happy. Each infant has their own personal crib and plenty of hugs, love and personal attention. Our teachers will guide your baby through a world of language by using sounds, songs, gestures, and words.

    We know it can be difficult to leave your infant in someone else’s care and feel confident that they will get the same love and care that you give, but rest assured, our infant teachers will build a bond with you and your baby that will put your mind at ease. We provide parents with daily “Small Talk” reports on feedings, diapering, and napping. All our teachers are certified in First Aid/CPR and many hours of continued education yearly to ensure your child’s well- being.

    Our Infant Program includes:

    • A nurturing environment that focuses on love and trust.
    • Baby Sign language to increase early communication skills & reduce frustration levels for infant and toddlers
