About Infant Care
Recent research shows us that the early childhood years are the most important years in our lives. A well-rounded, safe, nurturing experience during that time forms the basis for how we learn and dapt the rest of our life. Time spent at an Academy plays an important part in that development.
Our Infant Program Features

- Small class size to promote one-on-one attention
- Regular teacher-child interactions that spark curiosity and socialization
- Playtime and experiences that boost cognitive and motor skills

At Aristocat Children’s Academy we believe children need to feel safe and secure before they can begin to learn. This is why safety and security are among our top priorities for your child.
Our Infant Program offers a wonderful, nurturing environment for your baby, and care is individualized to meet every need. All infants are fed, changed, and napped depending on their individual routine, while teachers track and keep daily reports for parent communication. Each teacher cares for a small group of children to provide a safe, secure, loving environment.
At AristoCat Children’s Academy, we know that highly responsive care early in life is critical to your child’s long-term social and academic development. In our safe learning environment your baby will not only be loved and cared for - their cognitive, emotional, and physical development will also be stimulated by our highly trained teachers.
Throughout the day, our infants are introduced to a variety of experiences. We offer sensory engaging activities, literature, music, dramatic play, art and outside playtime as part of our daily program. Our teachers plan weekly experiences based on a monthly theme, children’s interest, and developmental assessments conducted in the classroom.
Sign language is an important part of our infant curriculum. We teach our infants babies sign language because we feel it is important to communicate with them. Sign language also reduces the amount of frustration a child might feel during this period of time while their language skills are emerging. We teach different signs throughout the day while we are using the corresponding words. Teachers share these signs with parents so they can be a part of this learning process with their child.
We love this place!
We have two kids attending, ages 3 and 19mos. They never complain about going and always seem like they had a good day when we pick them up.
They are super organized and use an app to let you know how they did throughout the day, like eating, sleeping, diapers, pictures and notifications of closures/events. The meals seem better than most daycare facilities and the staff really does seem to care about your children. They also go outside everyday (weather permitting) and that is not just what they tell you, you will most likely pick your children up outside if it is around 5pm.
We will have another infant in daycare there soon and feel comfortable having them care for our children.
