The Infant & Toddler Centre

Lorna McGrath

The first three years of life are a critical foundation for development and can also be a time of great anxiety for new parents. An effective Infant and Toddler Centre not only supports parents on their journey into parenthood, but also creates a sense of belonging to the community so that when the time comes to choose a school for their child, these families naturally will select the one that they are connected to. Based on her own success at NewGate School in Sarasota, Florida, Lorna McGrath shares the logistics of starting an Infant and Toddler Centre at your school and also presents parenting tips for expectant parents.
