Nurturing interactions with infant caregivers and teachers through frequent one of one contact in daily routines is a primary goal of our infant program. Our staff’s nurturing and caring approach enable infants at Pal’s to form healthy and loving bonds with others that provide them with a sense of security and confidence. We believe this approach combined with exceptional physical care and strong collaborations between caregivers and parents, is essential to the healthy overall development of infants.

Once infants enjoy a sense of security and caring the stage is set for learning. Learning initially takes place as children touch, manipulate, and experiment with real objects, and interact with people. Social interaction with other infants and daily learning experiences that stimulate cognitive learning and physical development all prepare our infants for successful transition to their toddler years.

Make Winter Safe for Kids!!!

  • Winter is an exciting time for kids. It brings great outdoor activities, such as snowboarding and skating, but also cold weather, ice and snow, which can present a danger to children. But that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the winter. Here are some winter safety tips for both parents and children.
    • Never allow children to play outside alone. Establish a buddy system with one or more of their friends and have them look out for one another. Children younger than eight years of age should always be well supervised outside.
    • Check from time to time to make sure children are warm and dry.
    • Have younger children take frequent breaks to come inside for a warm drink.
    • Never send children outside in extreme weather conditions such as snowstorms.
    • Keep children indoors if the temperature falls below 0°F, or if the wind chill is 0°F or greater.
