Our Developmental Goals

For Infants and Toddlers:


Our goal in the Infant/Toddler program is to help in the development of children who are secure, confident and competent.  We provide an environment that is emotionally warm and nurturing, physically safe and cognitively challenging.  There is time for uninterrupted play and freedom to explore and interact with other infants.  Respect is shown to the child along with sensitive observation in order to understand her/his individual needs.  It is our desire to work as a team with parents to provide the best for their child.
