Infant Program (3 – 24 months of age)

Older infant, "Busybee" classroom.

Younger infant, "Ladybug" classroom.

Steps to Learning Preschool (STLP) provides child care and education for age 3 months to 2 years.

Our Young Infant “Ladybug” program (3 months to walking) is designed around your child’s needs and his/her own schedule. We believe that an infant’s emotional support is as important as his/her physical growth. In our infant program, indoor/outdoor exploration is important. We will sing, read stories, music and movement, many sensory activities- play dough, water play, sand etc and arts & crafts- activities such as body painting, ice cube painting, themed crafty work etc. We will hold and hug and do our best to create a warm and loving environment for your young child.

Our Older Infant “Busybee” program (walking-2 yrs old) will follow a daily schedule that supports age appropriate curriculum similar to Young Infant Program and Toddler Program.
