Infants

Infants will be cared for in a warm and nurturing environment in which they will gain confidence in themselves and their environment. The infant curriculum offers activities that constantly engage your child and reinforce motor, sensory, cognitive, language and intellectual development.

Personalized care with a nurturing environment is provided to every infant. We enhance your baby's development with colorful toys and soft music.
