Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Arlington Infant Toddler Center (AITC) is dedicated to providing a quality child development program for children 3 months to 5 years of age in a warm, safe, and secure environment. Our experienced, loving and creative staff designs stimulating activities to provide children with the opportunities to learn, share and interact with other children. Individualized attention to the need of children is our main goal. Children develop a positive self-image when given the opportunities to make choices and experience success. AITC also has a variety of weekly activities that are implemented into the daily schedule including 2 music classes, exercise/ movement, and a karate class.
