"Stepping Stones"

Our infant program is designed to partner with you to maximize your baby's learning potential. Curriculum provides a balance of experience. Our curriculum meets the dynamic changes of your child's important first year. The teachers create an individualized plan which includes: daily education, enrichment, and exploration activities. 

Our teachers know that every baby is a special and unique individual. We begin by getting to know your child's routines. How often do they eat? What time do they like to nap? This information is used to customize each baby's day. All of these activities are part of our daily infant program. They are potential learning moments, as our loving caregivers interact by talking, singing, and playing.  

Our Staff

Mrs. Alicia (Lead Teacher)

As the lead infant teacher, it is my responsibility to build healthy learning skills and encourage positive growth and development. However, I consider it my honor to love, nurture, and educate my babies as well as to be educated by them. There is always room for growth and never an end to learning something new! In the almost 9 years of working in the Child Education field and my 3 years of college education, I have obtained an Associate's Degree and numerous continued education courses relative to caring for Infants and Toddlers. I have also obtained the title and honor of being a mother to two wonderful children. They are 4 and 2 and they both attend classes here at ITAVA. 

In our time outside the center, we enjoy playing with dinosaurs, babies, and watching Abby Hatcher. In conclusion, I'd like to thank all of our parent for sharing your blessings with me and our future!

Miss. Tiffany (Assistant Teacher)

I'm an Assistant Teacher in the infant room. I have been working in childcare since 2018. I'm currently working towards my Early Childhood Education Associates Degree at Schoolcraft College. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and playing sports! I have been coaching softball with my dad for my youngest sister's team for 8 years. I'm so excited to be working with your little ones and watching them grow!
