Infant program

The CKA staff is trained to appropriately care for infants in a healthy and safe environment. We keep a low ratio of babies to caregivers in order to offer individual attention. We understand that each baby’s needs are unique; our staff communicates daily with parents to ensure a comfortable and flexible schedule and reinforced learning at school and at home. Personal cribs contribute to a homey atmosphere, allowing your child to begin building positive relationships with our staff right away. Our infant room is divided into areas for changing, feeding, and activity for movement, exploration, and relaxation. In order to maximize cleanly eating, sleeping, and playing spaces, our staff and all guests are required to wear booties over shoes.

Your child will enjoy a cheerful atmosphere of songs, games, stories, and safe active movement in a group-oriented setting. Daily stroller rides (weather permitting) help your child become acquainted with sensory differences between the classroom and the outdoors.
