6 weeks to 24 months

Our infant program focuses on each child’s growth and development by including daily activities for physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. Our team of caregivers encourages the infants to develop their motor, language and social skills each day!

Our toddler program is designed around the understanding that at the age of 16 months, each toddler is now developing new ways to express their need to interact with parents, friends and teachers. Toddlers are encouraged to make independent choices, develop self-help skills and begin to solve problems. We love to read, sing and play with the children. Interactive teacher play is a priority in our program. It is not uncommon to see the caregivers down on the floor interacting with each child!

Classroom

The infants’ classroom is set up in a “home-like” environment. It provides a large playroom, diaper changing area and a separate sleeping room for a “home-like nursery” feel.

Safety & Training

Our team, made of highly passionate and qualified caregivers, is certified in CPR and First Aide training. Hearts & Minds inspects the safety of the program’s environment and keeps our facility clean and neat.

Communication

Hearts & Minds knows how important it is to keep the parents involved in their child’s daily activities, development and milestones. That’s why we provide you with the following:

  • Daily sheets to record and track the child’s day
  • The building of personal relationships with each family
  • Encouraging daily/weekly calls or emails from parents to our team to support communication
  • Open door facility; we promote parent visits to our facility at anytime to observe or participate in their child’s day
