Infant and Toddler Curriculum

The most important feature of Learning Tree Academy's Infant and Toddler programs is the nurturing, and safe environment we offer to your children between the ages of three weeks through 24 months. Our caregivers reinforce the warmth, security and love your child is used to receiving at home. Our Teachers support infants and toddlers curiosity with safe places to practice new skills through exploration and discovery. These children also develop self-awareness and independence through the use of daily routines.

Parent communication is uppermost importance with infants and toddlers. A daily report is provided to parents, which highlights the important events of their child's day including care and feeding schedules. This enhances the opportunity to create a special connection with each child and their family. Parent conferences are scheduled in the fall and spring. However, parents are encouraged to visit the classrooms and observe their child learning and having fun.
