Important Infant Learning Objectives

Our Infant Classroom

We welcome you to visit our Infant classroom to see babies forming secure attachments, clapping and laughing, using sign language, enjoying stories, creating art, and joyfully playing.

Teachers utilize The Creative Curriculum® for Infants, Toddlers & Twos to guide their daily teaching. This curriculum is based on the latest, most current research about how young children develop and learn.
Watching each baby achieve milestones, grow, laugh and form strong relationships is what our infant teachers love about their career!
