We accept infants starting at 6 weeks of age. During the first year of life, your child will undergo a tremendous amount of growth and development. He/she will go from learning basic motor skills such as how to lift and turn his/her head around 3 months of age to drinking from a cup and starting to play with small blocks by 1 year of age. At our center, your infant during his/her 1st year of life will not only receive an unparalleled amount of love, nurturing and individual attention, but he/she will also be surrounded with similar aged children and age-appropriate toys to maximize the development of important motor skills, sensory and thinking skills and language and social skills. Your infant will be immersed in Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese, and teachers work with each child in a series of stimulating activities that incorporate the natural routines of feeding and play. The teachers reinforce the babies’ development without disrupting their daily schedule.
Our nursery is decorated exclusively using the primary colors of red, black, and white, which research has proven to stimulate infants and enhance eyesight development and classical music is played throughout the day to enhance cognitive development.
In addition to providing a highly stimulating educational environment to maximize your infant’s cognitive development, we want give your child a safe, loving home away from home. We will provide your infant with his/her own individual crib along with crib sheets and blankets which we launder regularly and encourage you to bring family pictures from home to personalize your infant’s space. We also believe in personalized care for meal and nap times to meet you and your child’s individual needs and preferences. It is our pleasure to maintain any sleeping and/or feeding schedule that you may have in place.
