6 weeks - 8 months
Safety, happiness and development are priorities in the Birdies room where infants are nurtured by experienced moms who are friendly, enthusiastic, and responsive caregivers. Babies' needs are addressed with smiles, eye contact, and loving interaction. Vocabulary development is encouraged through conversation and music. A bright and cheerful classroom provides age-appropriate toys and activities, cushioned mats and boppies to assist with tummy time, and a community table designed for eating and playtime. A separate monitored sleeping room provides a soothing atmosphere for nap-time. Daily record keeping is an integral part of this program.
