Walnut Creek Academy welcomes infants as early as 6 weeks old. While it may not seem like there’s a lot which can be done to introduce academics at this age, the key to educational development means recognizing that a solid foundation must be laid first. And while babies need the most love and encouragement, they also need mental and creative stimulation. We provide both in a fun and nurturing environment, with plenty of music and songs. We also introduce sign language at this age to help make communication clear, accurate and easily understandable. What can you expect from our Little Dreamers program?:
- A nurturing environment focused on love, trust and bonding
- Baby sign language to gain a headstart on early communication
- Daily activities to help support healthy and natural physical development
You’ll find some of the basic milestones we use to assess developmental readiness below. Please note that all children progress at their own pace. An infant lagging behind in any of these areas is not necessarily a cause for concern.
