Infants- (starting at 3 months)
Our program provides a warm, welcoming environment where your baby can grow from a bundle of joy to a bundle of curiosity. Your baby's primary caregiver is a nurturing child development professional who is focused on creating experiences and opportunities that invite exploration and support the rapid and important development that is occurring in a child's first year. More than just daycare, at Piedmont ELC we are focused on keeping your baby happy, engaged, and secure. We personalize care for each infant based on his or her unique schedule, nutritional guidelines, and any other special attention he/she requires. Warm and nurturing interactions with caregivers, days spent in an environment for learning, individualized attention and experiences, and meaningful partnerships with parents are the cornerstones of our program for infants. Parents must provide all food and basic need items.
Our program uses hands-on exploration and social interaction in safe, engaging surroundings to help your one to two year old learn about his or her expanding world. Through the guidance of our early childhood development professionals, toddlers enjoy learning experiences that promote their blossoming independence and social skills, and foster self-confidence. Beyond day care, our curriculum for toddlers is designed to adapt to each individual child’s age and stage. Experienced teachers promote emotional, physical, social, and intellectual development in a fun, engaging environment. Parents must provide all food and basic need items. A child may shift to center meals upon 2nd birthday if desired.
