A clean, nurturing environment awaits your Infant in OCA's Infant Room. Our babies are well loved and maybe just a little bit spoiled! Every day we enjoy tummy time and going outside (weather permitting). Our babies love age-appropriate sensory experiences, music and movement exercises, being read to, and their art times.
