When the need arises to put your baby into our care, you can be sure that you are putting him or her into good hands.
During the first year of life, an infant needs more one-on-one attention which is what your baby will receive in our low infant to caregiver ratio. Our infant teacher will assist your baby to learn how to use language to connect with his or her world, to develop relationships and to get what he or she needs by encouraging these skills through daily, stimulating experiences such as tummy time, singing lullabies and songs, baby stories, puppets, age appropriate toys and interaction with others. She will build up a trust with your baby by giving freely available cuddles and a positive response to his or her cries and body language.
Discoverers – 16 months to 2 years
Optimal number in the class: 6
Here, your child will transition from baby to toddler, discovering and connecting with his or her world.
