Partnering with you and your baby every step of the way.
Our infant program serves children starting at twelve weeks. We believe in creating strong bonds during this time that will support your child’s ability to trust and learn in a safe and responsive environment. While in our infant program, children develop physically, emotionally, and socially by exploring with their five senses (indoors and outdoors), interacting with stimulating materials, and connecting with loving adults.

- Calming, neutral color palette and décor inspired by natural elements
- High-quality materials and toys for both quiet and active play

Infants’ Daily Schedule
Families and teachers work together to create an ideal schedule for each infant. As infants grow and feeding and sleeping habits change, the schedule is adjusted appropriately.
OWL for Infants
OWL is Georgetown Hill’s custom-designed wellness program. OWL is impletented at staff, child, and family levels throughout Georgetown Hill.

Communication with Families
In addition to ongoing face to face meetings at pick-up and drop-off times, we also communicate with families through the use of a digital communication app called KidReports. iPads in each classroom allow infant teachers to send daily reports on:
- Bottle feedings/meals
- Diaper changes
- Nap times
- Classroom activities (photos and videos)
Families can also use KidReports to update teachers on sleeping patterns, eating schedule, and any special needs for the day.
