Infant and Toddler Program

The Infant and Toddler Program is a comprehensive child development program that serves income eligible infants, toddlers, and their families. We acknowledge the importance of a family-centered program which follows the principle that parents are their child’s primary teacher. Therefore, every effort is made to support families and encourage parents to be involved in their children’s growth, development, and education.

Stressing the significance of those early healthy attachments are reflected in our curriculum, welcoming environments (center-based and home-based), and parent involvement opportunities.

Our home-based model serves families with expectant moms/fathers and families with children under the age of three.

The center-based option will offer comprehensive child care serving children 6 weeks of age to 3 years.  In those centers, we will offer a comfortable area for parents who are breastfeeding or wanting a relaxing quiet area to spend time with their child.

Each classroom accommodates 8 children with three teachers.  There is also family service staff for each center.  All of the staff are experienced in providing services to children with cultural diversities, special needs, and disabilities.  This allows your family to have a successful and enjoyable experience while your child attends Early Head Start.

Our four centers offering The Infant and Toddler Program are located in Vesper, Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield and Biron

Each Center~ 7:30am — 4:15pm

Monday through Friday

We provide formula, diapers, wipes, nutritious meals and snacks, and a curriculum designed to help your child learn at his/her own individual pace.

     The Infant and Toddler Program services will be provided all year round.
