The Starlight Group children are 6 weeks to 2 years old. The UCLCC program goals for infants and toddlers are to provide your child with a safe, nurturing, positive environment. This gives your child the opportunity to grow physically and mentally. Each child has the opportunity to explore and experiment according to the individual needs and development of the child.

Throughout the day infants are held, talked to, sung to, read to, and taken for walks outside when the weather permits. Talking, singing, and reading aloud to infants are essential for language development. Listening, responding, and imitating words are daily occurrences in the infant/toddler room. Through the use of quality staff, music, books and developmentally appropriate infant/toddler materials the environment supports appropriate growth and development of your child. Our curriculum for the infant/toddler room is designed to enhance the development of each child's mind and body and develop their social, emotional, and physical skills. Creative activities give your child their first experiences to enjoy art, music, and dramatic play. These activities create the building blocks for future social growth and give the child a chance to participate independently, talk, think, and explore their ever-changing world.
