Home and Center-Based Age Information:
Home Base (Individual Instruction)
- Birth to 3 years old (In-home infant stimulation, weekly visits in the home-for one hour, parent education and involvement)
Our In-Home Teachers work with the children in all areas of development; however, they concentrate on the identified goals for the individual child. They model appropriate activities and language for the family to continue throughout the week. In addition to in-the home activities, other developmental activities may take place in any natural environment such as during feeding or bathing, outside, or at a local park.

Our Classroom Teachers provide quality group and individual developmental programming three days a week with a choice of a morning session or an afternoon session. Our program uses a theme based curriculum with language-enriched instruction.
Also, all of our teachers are trained in “Infant Massage Techniques”. We incorporate basic sensory activities in the home sessions for children who may benefit from massaging techniques, and we educate and involve the parentsas well.
