Infants and Toddler Programs
Babies to 2 1/2 years old
Our Infant and Toddler programs are as close to home as you can get. We offer our wee ones lots of love and respect. Hugs and cuddles are given all day, every day. The children's interests are followed daily in our programming. Children play and explore both inside and out. Our consistent daily routine and loving environment allows the children to settle in quickly and become a part of our "family".
