Our nurturing caregivers provide the ultimate in care for our youngest students. Current research in child development demonstrates that touching, holding, cuddling and speaking to infants actually facilitates brain growth during this time of rapid development. 

Our superior 1:2 adult/child ratio allows our caregivers to provide relationship-driven care, developing a trusting bond with your baby while you’re away. We believe a strong family-school relationship is vital in providing optimal care for our infants and young toddlers.
