Our Infant Program guides your baby's early experiences toward a lifelong love of learning.

Our teachers spend lots of time cuddling and talking to your baby to instill trust and provide a healthy early learning environment for movement, exploration and communication.

Our infant care play area is filled with toys and books that help your baby develop at his or her own pace. Teachers sing songs and read stories to encourage language acquisition. They also pass balls and play games to develop motor skills. In many Goddard Schools, American Sign Language is introduced to encourage children to express their thoughts or needs. Goddard Teachers also work with the parents to ensure a balance of home and school. Together they develop the child’s daily schedule including nap times, play times and bottle times.

As part of the Infant Program, the First Steps classroom helps the child transition from Infant to Toddler as the budding explorers learn new vocabulary and self-help skills.

All programs are customized to your child’s progress, needs and age. Schedule a tour today to experience a day in the life of your infant!

The Toddler Program encourages your child’s natural curiosity in a fun and active learning environment.

Great developmental strides are made in our Toddler Program. From baby’s first steps, to learning to share, to potty-training… and of course, discovering the answers to the favorite toddler question, “Why?”

Through The Goddard School® F.L.EX.® Learning Program, teachers plan daily activities in a bright and cheery environment to encourage eager investigation of the world. Within the consistent structure toddlers crave, they enjoy a daily balance of quiet activities, spirited music and movement and plenty of outdoor climbing, running and jumping.

Learning Centers are always open for imaginary play with blocks and puzzles, creative art and lots of books. Circle time incorporates stories and songs that encourage language skills and social growth. Children are guided through activities that strengthen gross motor skills, such as using balance beams and standing on tip-toes; and fine motor skills through crayon and marker use.
