For Early Childhood Education

Infant Daycare

(Beginning at 6 weeks old)*

At the Malvern School, our Infant Program** provides a warm, nurturing environment for your child and offers countless opportunities for your child to explore through observation, movement, and use of their senses. We go beyond the traditional infant program to introduce education at an early age. Curriculum implementation considers the varying ages and schedules of each child.

*Age ranges are approximate. **The Malvern School Curriculum is fully aligned with State Early Learning Standards.

Language/communication skill-building through introduction and repetition of words, phrases, and sounds using objects, books, photos, and personal interactions that include listening, babbling, gesturing, and facial expressions.

Social/emotional well-being through positive reciprocal interactions with teaching staff and peers, and recognition of familiar teachers and friends.

Development of physical skills with daily attention to tummy time, leg exercises, rolling over, reaching, creeping and crawling, pulling up, walking, hand-eye coordination, and picking up objects including finger foods.

Enjoyment of art and music experiences such as responding to music, exploring musical instruments, dancing, use of simple art materials, creating and responding to images, painting, tearing, and crumpling.

Nurturing curiosity and interest in the world, and the delight of discovering new things through the use of the five senses.

Our older infants have the opportunity to explore in our Fascination Station. With a teacher close at hand, this custom room is a place where your child can see, touch, and do through hands-on activities.
