  • Barnes Miller Child Development Center offers full-time care for children ages 6 to 18 months in our infant program.
  • We are pleased to be able to offer one primary caregiver for each group of 4 children.
  • The philosophy, which guides our infant environment, is based on Resources for Infant Educarers.
  • We believe that even the smallest children are strong, capable, and unique; that the relationships they have are of primary importance in their lives.
  • Using a portfolio system filled with photographs and descriptions, our caregivers meaningfully document each child's growth and development during their time together.
  • Our Infants enjoy family style meals and snacks, predictable routines - including resting time, outside time and individual attention.
  • They also explore the materials and activities created for them in the art studio.
  • Each day, the caregivers work together to stimulate the children in their care with sensory activities, and language play.
  • While some of the youngest children may sleep in cribs, no other devices are used which are intended to restrict the child's movement.
  • Our classroom environments have been carefully created to offer each child a maximum amount of independence, freedom of movement and safety.
  • Our goal at Barnes-Miller Child Development Center can best be described by our logo.
  • Overall, our mission is to capture the whimsical joy of being a child! The children represent sports, the art of play.
  • Each child is adorned with a large red heart, symbolizing the gateway in which love travels back and forth.
  • The star symbol was incorporated to show how every child is a star.
  • The physical symbol represents the math and science portion of their experience with us.
  • The swirl is the Celtic symbol for "eternal youth". The field of stars becoming the children represents their bright future!.
