Infant/ Toddler


January 2015 Open – Enrollment first 12 infants will receive a gift card

At The Lewis Chatman Academy we offer days packed full of activities. All of our activities help the social and academic development of children.

Infants are unique and have their own patterns for play, feeding and sleeping. We use these patterns as our guide to introduce daily activities that will prepare your infant for the next stage. Our highly trained teachers and staff offer a nurturing and creative environment for infants to develop their bodies and minds. We are committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your child.

Infant Program


  • Building of self-esteem through nurturing personal care
  • Interaction with groups to spark curiosity and socialization
  • Focus on cognitive and motor skills through playtime, reading, and other activities
  • Development through age-appropriate materials and toys

At Lewis Chatman Academy we recognize that you have a difficult schedule. Our goal is to support families to the best of our abilities. We offer drop-in care, early drop-off, and late pick-up so that your schedule can be accommodated. We recognize the importance of work, stress, and demands placed on parents. We strive to make it easier by giving them the knowledge and assurance that their children are in good hands.

Toddlers learn through sensory experiences that enhance their cognitive, language, motor and social skills. They turn ideas into words and phrases to better express themselves, and practice the value of sharing and cooperating through group play. It is important for children to express themselves creatively and, through The Lewis Chatman Academy’s Toddlers Program, we encourage all children to develop their unique skills, interests, and social skills.
