Infant Program

Especially for Children’s Infant Program offers a safe, nurturing environment where children learn about themselves and their feelings. They develop relationships with caring teaching staff and with other children. Our goal is to make your baby to feel safe and loved. This bond creates confidence in your child so that he or she will be ready and excited to learn new skills while in our care.


Moreover, we build a relationship with you and your family, prioritizing open communication so that we are working in partnership to promote the growth and development of your child. We use the Baby Connect mobile application to stay in touch with you throughout the day, and we hold parent/teacher conferences two times a year to discuss your child’s progress toward age-appropriate developmental goals. Learn more about our Infant Program in the tabs below.

In our Infant Program, The Creative Curriculum® emphasizes a classroom environment filled with responsive daily routines and meaningful, individualized experiences that nurture your child’s learning and development.The routines below are the foundation of your child’s day; they are also the foundation of learning. The consistent and nurturing interactions that children experience during everyday activities build trust and allow them to learn through experiencing the world around them. In addition, our dedicated teaching staff work with you to continue and support the schedule you have developed with your baby in his or her first weeks or months. Daily routines at Especially for Children include:

  • Hellos and Goodbyes
  • Diapering and Toileting
  • Eating and Mealtimes
  • Sleeping and Naptime
  • Getting Dressed

Your child will also gain new skills through a variety of enrichment activities. He will engage with teaching staff and socialize with other infants while:

  • Playing with Toys
  • Dabbling in Art
  • Imitating and Pretending
  • Enjoying Stories and Books
  • Tasting and Preparing Food
  • Exploring Sand and Water
  • Having fun with Music and Movement
  • Going Outdoors

We are excited to use Baby Connect for daily parent/family communication at our centers. Baby Connect is website and mobile application that allows parents and caregivers to log and share information about a child’s day in a digital format. Infant and toddler teachers use a tablet to record daily activities and take photos – parents can connect in real-time through the app, the website or via email. Baby Connect is available in the infant and toddler rooms of all of our centers.
