Infants

At Tender Care Learning Centers, infants are nurtured, loved and cared for. Our teachers are fully trained in all aspects of infant development, and health and safety. You can be confident your baby will be in a safe and loving environment all day long.

We understand that from birth, infants show a wide variety of physical, social and emotional abilities, therefore we use an individualized infant program called Creative Curriculum®. This curriculum consists of age-appropriate materials that allow each teacher to use inventive ideas and activities to address each infant’s unique needs and enhance their abilities.

Our infant program blends a variety of activities that help babies develop at their own level of achievement and growth, including:

  • Discovering and exploring their world around them
  • Imitating what others do
  • Repeating and practicing actions
  • Receiving nurturing from others

In the infant classrooms, our teachers communicate daily with parents in person. They provide you with written daily happenings that include notes about your baby’s activities, diaper changes, naps, and feedings, as well as baby’s exciting learnings, experiences and achievements!
