Infants

The baby brain is an incredible learning machine.

Research has shown that childhood experiences shape the developing brain, and that an emotionally supportive environment is critical at a very early age.

At Camden Academy, we realize what an important task you are entrusting to us every day, and every day we strive to give your child the experiences, the stimulation, the positive reinforcement and the drama-free environment that fosters social, educational and emotional growth.

We believe that by changing the environment and the content, your child will learn more and learn faster, regardless of age.
