Learning begins the moment your baby is born

Offering care for infants as young as 6 weeks old, St. Ann Center doesn’t want to waste a minute helping your little ones get acquainted with the fascinating world around them, while encouraging their growth and development.

Babies Atrium Event

Helping your baby reach all of his or her first steps:

  • Physical. Natural reflex movements of hands and limbs; sitting, crawling, standing and beginning to walk (6 months to 1 year)
  • Thinking Skills. Moving eyes to and fro, using hands and mouth to explore objects
  • Language. Crying to inform, listening to sounds, beginning to say words like “mama” and “dada”
  • Social. Cuddling, interacting with other children, sharing toys through play
  • Emotional. Expressing emotions through laughing, smiling, crying and clapping

Support from generous people, like you, creates this joyful intergenerational community.

Intergenerational activities include:

  • Music. Singing and clapping with adult friends from the Wellness Unit
  • Rockaby Alerts. You won’t find any crybabies at St. Ann Center. When teachers need a few extra pairs of loving arms to comfort crying little ones, a Rockaby Alert is issued over the building’s intercom. That’s the cue for available adults and staff to drop what they’re doing and race to the infant care rooms for a chance to hold and rock the babies.

I want to tell you how glad I am that our daughter is in the Ladybug room at your school. The energy is so calm when I go in, even if there is a baby or two crying. You have an amazing staff and every day I am grateful for them!”
