Infants get frequent interaction and solid naps so that more neural connections are formed, making happier and smarter kids from the start.  Older children are encouraged to share experiences with younger children.  This helps the older children learn compassion and helps the younger children to learn new skills.


We also have 3 cats, Leftie, Sofia and Regal - all are declawed and child friendly.
