Infant Program at Our Early Education Center
Give Your Child a Safe Place to Grow and Develop in Houston
A Secure Space for Physical and Cognitive Development
The Infant Program at The Apple Tree School provides children with a nurturing environment where they can safely grow and explore. Our number one focus is maintaining a secure and sanitary space where our caregivers can ensure that all of your child’s needs are met. Beyond that, we help children grow their emotional capacity so that they can recognize feelings and begin to develop empathy and understanding with others. We know that babies learn how to treat others based on how they are treated, so we always respond with a loving consistency that encourages them to interact kindly with others. As your child grows with us, we help them develop motor skills, language, problem solving, and reasoning abilities. Contact us today to learn more!

When it comes to infants, safety and health are our highest concerns. Our early childhood education program focuses on preventing problems before they can occur and maintaining safe and supervised spaces for your little one to grow and explore. We always respond promptly, consistently, and lovingly, just as you do, to meet every need.
We teach children about feelings by responding to what they are trying to communicate. When your child notices something and gets excited, we respond with the same excitement. When your child is sad, we talk about those feelings and reassure your child. These experiences help your child recognize feelings and begin to empathize with others. Babies learn how to treat others from the ways they are treated.
In the first years your child will go from being held to running and jumping; from holding a rattle to turning the pages of a book and drawing pictures. With increasing motor skills comes the ability to actively explore the world.
Cognitive development means changes in the way your child thinks. As they grow they develop an increasing understanding of the world around them and use what they learn to reason and solve problems. Young children are active explorers who construct an understanding of the world as they watch, listen, taste, touch, and smell everything around them.
At one time people thought, “Why talk to babies? They don’t understand anything.” We now know that language development begins at birth. In fact, the part of the brain that is used for language is most active during the first few years of life. The more you listen and talk, sing and repeat rhymes and chants, and read books, the more language your child will understand and use to communicate.
