Nurturing growing minds
We want to assure each parent that their child will be placed in a room that is best suited for them individually, one that encompasses their physical, emotional and social needs. At each stage, we provide classrooms that provide the specific nurturing and encouragement that children thrive in.

We designed the infant childcare rooms at Ardent to make the transition for both parent and child as smooth as possible! We’ve created a safe, “feels like home” environment that enables us to love and nurture your infant as we seek to meet their individual needs. We offer 3 different infant classes to best suit your child both developmentally and emotionally.
6 WEEKS — 6 MONTHS
Our Infant 1 room is best suited for babies who are in the age range of 6 weeks – 6 months. To provide the appropriate care for your child, napping and feeding schedules are initially on demand (as needed). At 3 months, we begin transitioning them to a more scheduled day, including two set nap times as well as gradually introducing them to tummy time. Every room has a social space where babies can see their friends and are engaged by the teachers through songs and play.
6 MONTHS — 12 MONTHS
Our Infant 2 room is best suited for babies who are between 7 months – 13 months. This is a fun and busy stage for babies as they begin to demonstrate their mobility. Our rooms are designed to accommodate not only this increased movement but also their increased interest in everything around them. The infant 2 room has a social space where babies can visit with one another and are engaged by the teachers through songs and play. We also introduce basic sign language to enable the babies to communicate with their teachers and parents!
12 MONTHS — 18 MONTHS
Our Infant 3 room is best suited for babies between 10 months – 16 months. There is a slight overlap in age between this room and Infant 2 and the reason is simply so we can best accommodate your child. Developmental milestones are met differently with each child and we want to make sure that those babies who are expressing an interest in walking get the opportunity to practice! Infant 3 is also designed to introduce your child to a more structured feeding, napping, and play schedule. Sign language is continued to be used and taught and we even begin exposing the children to the wonderful world of the alphabet and numbers!
