Our Infant programs align with the Arizona Infant and Toddler Guidelines to ensure students receive a consistent and developmentally appropriate education right from birth.

Each year you and your child will participate in four parent teacher conferences.  Two open house style conferences where children and parents can explore their child's progress and classroom activities together.  As well as two teacher directed conferences where you will receive observation driven progress reports and participate in quarterly learning goal creation.

In order to insure that your child is prepared for the next stages of learning your teacher will create weekly individual lesson plans based on your child's needs.  These plans are created with a focus on these specific concentration areas:
