					Dear Parents,

       We welcome you to the Infant Program and feel confident that
you will enjoy the safe, loving and stimulating environment we have
created for your child.
       This welcome packet will provide you with information regarding
our curriculum, our daily schedule and will provide you with a list of
supplies that your child will need.
       The Infant Program at Creative Kids Enrichment strives to
maintain an environment that is based on a home schedule and also
provides learning experiences through the use of the "Creative
Curriculum". Based on this curriculum, the program facilitates
emotional, social, physical, and cognitive growth through a child's natural
tendency to play.
       We are also excited that you have chosen Creative Kids
Enrichment for your child and want you to know that your infant will
receive the best nurturing care and will grow in every way every day
that they are with us.
                                            Sincerely,
