Infant & Toddler Care
An all-day second home for your little ones.
The gold standard in early childhood education.
ITAV infants and toddlers are provided with a safe, nurturing environment where they receive the attention and care that they need. Your child will be involved in developmentally appropriate activities throughout the day for which you will receive daily care reports.
Children are offered a variety of opportunities to explore their world through play. Gross motor skills and social skills are developed through both structured and unstructured play. Their days are filled with music, art, dance, storytimes and more.
Early Intervention Services
Children are screened and if needed, early intervention services are offered on-site. Three nutritious meals are served daily. Early Head Start (EHS) Families participate in two home visits and two-parent conferences per year. Free diapers and wipes are also available for EHS children as well as a center-selected formula.
We utilize the Creative Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers to offer a nurturing, safe, child-centered environment in which the child leads based upon their natural curiosity. We believe that creating an environment that arouses children’s curiosity in conjunction with intentional teaching provides two-year-olds the opportunity to leave our facility with good social skills, language development, potty training, knowledge of basic colors and shapes, and the ability to identify a few letters and numbers.
To enhance our program, we often bring in puppet shows, petting zoos and other activities to ensure that our infants and toddlers are exposed to an array of resources that enhance brain development.
14 years have passed since my story with ITAV began. I am so grateful to the ITAV family for allowing my three daughters and me to be part of their great family. There have been great moments and memories that will always remain in my mind. Thank you ITAV for your support and commitment.
My toddler’s face lights up with excitement every time we are approaching his school. It gives me a great sense of comfort knowing that he is in great hands while I am away from him.
ITAV’s teachers are truly a third parent in raising our kids and an essential part of our family! We not only lean on them for childcare, we turn to them for emotional support as parents, laughs after a stressful day at work, and honest feedback about what our kids need that we might be missing.
After receiving my Childhood Development Associate credential through the Early Childhood Workforce program at ITAV, I realized how much I love learning about children and think I want to pursue getting my Masters in Child Development.
