Infant & Toddler Care

Our infant toddler care program focuses on individualized care of each child.

A Great Early Education for Kids

Children enrolled at DLEC receive a high-quality, developmentally appropriate early education. Our students attend a dynamic, inclusive school with multilingual teachers who reinforce the language kids speak at home as well as help them master English. Our curriculum includes literacy, math, and social-emotional skills so that all DLEC five-year-olds can enter kindergarten prepared and ready to learn and grow.

Classes average 7-8 for Infant rooms and 13-14 for Toddler rooms with a Lead Teacher and Teaching Assistant. Infants are fed on demand, and feeding requirements will be discussed with the family. Toddler meals include breakfast/lunch/snacks. Menus follow Federal and State guidelines and are reviewed by our nutrition consultant.
