Language Acquisition

Infants are growing and learning on a daily basis. They will reach and accomplish many milestones at this stage in their lives. Infants learn best by using their senses – seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling. They use their senses to explore and learn on a daily basis.

Our program encourages infants to explore and expand their curiosity and develop competence and confidence. Our caregivers establish positive, warm and nurturing relationships with the children. They will observe and interact with your child to encourage interests, developmental progress, and abilities.
