CDC's Infant Program

Infant Program

Each child and parent is greeted individually and warmly by all staff they come in contact with. From the front desk throughout our halls you can hear the warm good mornings flowing.

After establishing when your child had their last feeding and diaper change, the fun begins! We believe that children learn and develop more successfully in a warm environment built on play and relationships. Therefore many times you will find our infants on the floor interacting with the teachers engaged in activities such as reading, finger plays, etc.

Here at the CDC we like to think of ourselves as a part of your extended family. The daily transition from home to center should be as smooth as if your child were visiting relatives.

All infants are fed and allowed to nap on demand. We check and change diapers every hour or as needed. Once the infants are older we change our schedules and room arrangements to fit their needs. Ultimately, we schedule our activities around the needs and demands of the infants in our care.
