Learning Through Play
What You Need
Itsy Bitsy Hearts begins with babies, ages 10 weeks - 18 months, the freedom of movement and self-awareness. Your child will be loved and cared for so that they can develop at their own pace.
The infant classroom environment is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing. Your baby will have uninterrupted playtime and the freedom to explore and interact with other infants.
Your infant will be involved in all care activities (diapering, hand washing, feeding etc.) allowing him or her to become an active participant rather than be a passive recipient. When you come for a tour, we will explain more of how this works and the benefits to your baby.
Our teachers will observe your baby closely and sensitively in order to understand and fulfill his or her needs.
Peace of Mind
We just got even safer. We have implemented the owlet technology into our daycare for the peace of mind for parents.
The Owlet Smart Sock is the only baby monitor that uses pulse oximetry to give you a real-time look into your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels.

A Perfect Fit
Itsy Bitsy Hearts Toddler program is designed for your active and curious child. Your child will start in this program at 18 months old. Your child can enroll to come to school 2, 3, 4 or 5 days a week. You can choose the days your child will attend.
We work on social skills, problem solving skills and create developmentally appropriate activities and learning experiences that will keep your child busy and safe.
Toddlers are naturally wanting to discover new things and our small class size provides them with the environment to do that.
Our teachers get to know each child, learn their interests and plan developmentally appropriate, engaging activities such as; painting, water and sand play, book exploration, manipulative play, small group experiences and group circle times. All of these experiences pave the way for toddlers in their path towards lifelong learning.
As your toddler is working on their language skills our teachers work with them to encourage verbal communication. When toddlers are understood, they feel important and it is meaningful to them.
Coordination of body and self control are also part of learning for toddlers. With our curriculum your child will work on these skills on daily basis.

Music for Babies & Toddlers
What can babies & toddlers do? They can sing, dance, communicate, and learn through a variety of fun and age-appropriate musical activities. We develop memory skills and language while learning the elements of music though delightful songs, instrument playing, and exploration. Our youngest musicians have a lot of fun as they learn in this nurturing musical environment with our preschool friends and teachers.
Music for Preschool Age Kids
Little Kids love to sing, dance, and play instruments! They also enjoy our entertaining musical stories and fun songs in this lively, age-appropriate class. It’s the perfect start for learning music! Visuals, picture books, and adorable puppets help make the music come to life! Children develop memory skills and language, timing, rhythm, pitch matching, and other musical skills in a comfortable and age-appropriate learning environment with their preschool friends and teachers.
Recent studies have demonstrated that music involvement for preschoolers can enhance your child's spatial intelligence and increase his/her ability to grasp abstract mathematical concepts.
Studies from the American Music Conference have shown that children who regularly participate in music have shown dramatic improvements in memory retention skills, eye hand coordination, and spatial temporal reasoning skills.
