Our Infant Center

We are very excited to have the opportunity to care for our youngest children at Shir Ami Early Learning Center. We understand that babies have a vast array of needs but that it’s also a time of extraordinary growth and building foundations that will last forever. Our goal is to bond with your child but also build a trusting relationship between families and teachers.
Shir Ami Infant Center teachers have the experience and knowledge to care for each baby’sphysical needs while focusing on developmental needs as well. Each baby has an individual schedule that is prescribed by the parent and changes as your baby grows.

Our Infant Center includes soft, cuddly toys, inviting, textured books, and colorful manipulative materials. Throughout the day your baby gets to experience music, outdoor time, story time, Shabbat and other activities that enhance a little one’s cognitive, social, emotional and motor

Through lots of holding, hugs and individual attention, our teachers have the opportunity to converse and connect with your baby in a positive way. Our teachers communicate about your baby’s day through daily reports and one on one interaction with each family.
