Our Infant Program
Age 6 Weeks to 24 months
After birth, the human brain grows rapidly, more than doubling to reach 60 percent of its adult size by the time an infant is just 12 months old. The first few years of an infant’s life is full of learning through environmental stimulation each day. We value this amazing time in a child’s life and are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment where babies can explore, make new discoveries each day and expand on their development of skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning!

Your baby's early education at Little Explorers Preschool
We focus on several areas that provide your baby with an array of opportunities for growth and learning.
Enhancing Brain Power
We use a variety of materials of different shapes, textures, colors and sizes to allow babies to use all of their five senses to discover their surrounding environment through play
We talk to your child verbally and through non-verbal gestures consistent with sign language throughout the day by telling them stories and singing songs. These activities will help to create a foundation that builds conversation skills and helps infants associate objects, sounds and words.
Developing Trusting Relationships
We use words, facial expressions, eye contact and close interactions with lots of cuddles to communicate with our young toddlers. This provides a nurturing environment where they can form close connections with their caretakers to build trusting relationships.
Improving Mobility and Coordination
Throughout the first few years babies are learning to roll over, crawl, stand and walk. We support this development of mobility and coordination with an array of structures inside and outside the classroom. We also work daily with them on exercises that will build on their physical strength.
Our program promotes creativity through art projects, imaginative play, movement and music. These activities help to encourage self-expression and foster a love of creativity and imagination.
