Our infant group accommodates seven infants, aged three months to approximately 15 months,
under the care of a Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care certified teacher and one assistant teacher. A warm, secure environment, allows our infants to begin to explore the world. The use of language and verbalizations are encouraged by the teachers who talk, read and sing to the children and respond to their attempts to communicate. Children experience music for listening and relaxing as well as dancing and moving. Teachers encourage development of independence in a variety of ways such as facilitating self-feeding in older infants and encouraging infants to select their own toys and books. Carefully chosen equipment and teacher support help our infants reach milestones such as sitting and pulling up to stand.
