Infant Child Care & Early Education

Infants grown and learn each and every day.  Creative Hands provides a safe and nurturing “home away from home” where your child can explore and make new discoveries.  Young children learn through play, and our infant care program is designed to provide infants with the skills that serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning.

We appreciate you trusting us with your infant’s care and education, and we’re committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your child.


Inside Your Infant’s Day


Our Infant Care Program Features

Each day your child will be discovering things using all five senses, copying simple actions of the people around them, experimenting with toy instruments, exploring textures, colors, and learning a variety of words and sounds through playing with other children.
