Singing Canaries Room
The Singing Canaries
The Singing Canaries Room is tailored to infants from 6 weeks to 12 months of age.
HLC's infant room is dedicated to building relationships, communication, and exposure to developmental milestones. The key focuses of the Singing Canaries room are to develop a connection with each infant and their families, gain experience with cognitive, language, fine & gross motor, and social-emotional through play, and prepare each child for the upcoming 1-year-old room. The infant classroom serves a very monumental time period for each infant and their family. As such we endeavor to use this extraordinary time in the infants' life to increase independence, build love and safety, and use teamwork with their family
