What programs are available at BESTOW?

Bestow Infants

Bestow infants bring their own unique pattern for playing, feeding, sleeping and interacting to each day. This pattern changes often throughout the first year. Bestow uses these patterns to guide each child through their daily schedule along with daily communication with parents. Our devoted teachers are committed to making a child’s first transition away from home as easy as possible for both the child and the parents.
