12 months – 23 months

Infant classroom offers strategies for building positive relationships, helping children develop self-regulation and responding to challenging behaviors in a sanitized and safe environment.

Teachers guide children to learn during daily routines and everyday experiences. By responding consistently to children, teachers help children develop skills in physical, social, emotional and cognitive developmental areas.

Our responsive care builds secure relationships with teachers and other children in a group. Children learn to play safely with limits and be guided in ways they behave. They are also engaged in playing with toys, listening to the stories, connecting with music and movement and exploring sand and water.
