Infant/Young Toddler Room

Early Learning Montessori School in Forks & Palmer Townships

Infant Care/Young Toddler Childcare- ages 6 weeks through 18 months.
CLCLV Infant area was designed to allow younger infants to explore their world in a warm and secure environment. Families are encouraged to develop their child’s daily schedule to guide staff through their day with naps, playtime, and bottle times to ensure consistency between their home schedule and CLCLV. We are part of PA Food Program (CACFP) and supply infant formula, baby food and we have a full menu on our first page of our website.
