Infant Room

  • The infant/toddler room at Carmel Child Development Center (CCDC) serves children from birth to 24 months. The teacher to child ratio in this room is 1:4. The Infant/Toddler Program strives to provide a safe and nurturing environment while offering a developmentally appropriate program designed to develop each child’s self-esteem, sense of competence and a positive feeling toward learning. Each child will have an opportunity to foster healthy development through adult-infant interactions.  Your child will be motivated to explore, experiment and problem solve as he/she is offered a variety of materials and adult interactions to stimulate his/her needs. 

    The Infant/Toddler Program is open from 7:15 am until 4:30pm daily.
