About the Provider

Description: While in our care, your child will be in a developmentally appropriate program that will encourage growth and development in the areas of language, cognition, social/ emotion, sensory, and motor skills (gross and fine).  Each week there will be books and activities that follow a set theme, and your child will be given opportunities for individual and group activities, indoor and outdoor play, free/ exploratory play, and art and music.  We will have a schedule that we will follow, but not strictly.  Little learners are, after all, very young.  They dictate when they are hungry, need rest, need extra cuddle time, need changed, etc, so we follow their lead.

Additional Information: Number Of Infants Licensed: 8; PTQ Level 1;
