Infant Two (6 months/ crawling to 1 year/ walking)
The infant 2 room cares for children ages 6 months/crawling to 12 months/walking. We strictly follow the PA state ratio of 1:4. Staff members spend the day playing on the floor teaching, singing, and laughing with your child. The room is set up to encourage walking, along with offering music and movement experiences, and an introduction to Art, Storytime, and Water play in the summer months. Your child will be on their own individual feeding and sleeping schedules. This room offers the best transition from infant to toddler for your child.
