The Learning Garden provides child care for infants starting at 6 weeks old.
Our primary goal in our infant rooms is to create a loving, nurturing environment that provides a home away from home feeling. Individual attention is important to us so all of our infant rooms maintain a 4:1 child to teacher ratio.
Leaving your infant in someone else’s care can be very difficult for families. We understand this and want to make the transition as easy as possible for you and your child. We encourage all new families to start with a tour. There you can see how the center operates and see the infant rooms in action. Before your infant’s first day, we’ll make a point of learning as much as we can about your baby, their schedule, their likes and dislikes. With all this information, we can ensure your child enjoys their time with us.
The infant 1 classroom are designed for our very young, less mobile babies. Snuggling, rocking, soothing and engaging your baby are some of the daily activities in these rooms.
Infant 2 classrooms were created for our more mobile babies. As they are more able to engage in activities, you will find your baby enjoying circle time, songs, stories and stretching. Open ended art projects, such as, painting, cool whip and pudding play, are introduced.
In addition to each room being equipped with an iPad for texting/emailing and sharing of photos with parents, daily reports are provided for all infant rooms so that parents know how their child ate, slept and played each day. Each of our infant rooms has a slightly different schedule that has been tailored to their age group but the schedule below will provide a general idea of our little ones day.

Here’s what some of our parents are saying!
“All 3 of my children have attended this facility since 4-6months old. The teachers have become family and we could speak more highly of all the staff. The director is wonderful and very attentive to both children and the parents.”Nick G.
“I have two boys at The Learning Garden West, I have never looked for anywhere else to send them! They both started when they were 4 months old and have been treated like they were family by the staff, director & owner. I’m not going to lie and say everyday was rainbows and unicorns, but any time I have had a problem or concern it has been addressed promptly and seriously by the teachers, director & owner. My kids LOVE going in every morning and that speaks volumes!! I have also felt they have been doing a wonderful job preparing my oldest for Pre-K & Kindergarten, he’s going to hit the ground running in school both academically & socially. Couldn’t imagine sending them anywhere else!”Kim H.
“We have been a part of The Learning Garden West for 3 years now and we couldn't imagine sending our child anywhere else! The teachers and staff are so great with the kids (and the parents).Lauren M.
Leaving your child is never easy, but knowing they are in a safe, caring, and educational environment makes all the difference. We are grateful to have found them!”
“We have had our first child enrolled in The Learning Garden West since 2019, and we love all of the staff! They feel like family to us! When we moved in 2021 and we’re expecting another child, we knew even though we would have to travel farther to take our children to daycare there was no where else we would rather go. Our daughters love it here and we are at ease knowing they are in excellent hands while we are at work! We will welcome our 3rd child in December and feel at ease knowing that our children are well taken care of and excited to go to daycare every day!!”Sarah M.

We make every effort to maintain a schedule that works for you and your family. Please let us know during enrollment if you have special scheduling requests.
Each classrooms are equipped with iPads allowing staff to text/email and even send pictures to keep in contact with parents. We also provide a detailed daily report that will tell you what and when your child ate, when they napped and when they played. We also welcome parents to call anytime to check on your baby.
