Infant & Wobblers Care

Our Great Places for Babies 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.

The Village has developed a Primary Care Program dedicated to providing a nurturing and loving atmosphere to meet each child's individual needs. This program is geared towards infants six weeks to a year old. A daily report is sent home each evening with information concerning each child's activities, meals, naps, diaper changes, and overall disposition. Parents are encouraged to visit anytime. Our infant/Wobbler Program incorporates activities that are matched to each child's development level.

More than just daycare, at The Village Children's Learning Center we are focused on keeping your baby happy, engaged, and secure.
