At The Wiggle Room, we believe that the experiences a child has in the first years of life are critical to development. With this in mind, we strive to fill our days with meaningful
and educationally sound activities that will enhance all aspects of our children’s lives. At The Wiggle Room, we know that learning, fun and play can all go hand in hand.
Infants & Toddlers
Our infant classrooms begin enrollment at 6 weeks of age. Our toddler classrooms serve children who are 1 or 2 as of September 1st.
Family Owned and Operated
The Wiggle Room is owned and operated by a family of former Pasadena I.S.D. educators. Suzanne Hernandez, director and co-owner, was a 3rd grade teacher and school librarian before going into business with her mother, Carolyn Elender. Carolyn has an integral role in The Wiggle Room's pre-kinder program. Her experience teaching 4th grade and then writing elementary math curriculum for Pasadena, has made her an invaluable asset.
Birth to 11 months
Lovebugs, Ladybugs & Snails
These classrooms teach our tiniest students ranging in age from 6 weeks to 11 months. The students spend time every day listening to books being read aloud and songs being sung. They are exposed to baby sign language daily and enjoy plenty of floor time to explore their surroundings and promote their gross motor development. Our infant rooms have schedules that best accommodate the ever changing needs of their students.

They master important skills such as rote counting to 25, letter identification, numeral identification to 15 and letter sounds. We focus on fine motor skills to promote proper writing form and master all upper case letters and the writing of their name. Our teachers continue to promote social goals by directly teaching about self-control and providing a safe spot with options on how students can calm their bodies.
This classroom is located in our building at 1107 Vista. This classroom teaches our students who are 3 years of age. These students are presented with the same curriculum as the honeybees, but at a faster pace. This faster pace will not be appropriate for all students and so these students must meet predetermined academic and behavioral goals before enrollment. This classroom will incorporate additional elements of science and technology to expand understanding and exploration.

NEED MORE INFORMATION?
We love the Wiggle Room! I have kids that have been here from infant to after school care for 5+ years now. Teachers are great!!! My son left for Kinder SO prepared! Highly recommend!
Both of my children attend this daycare. I love it!!! My oldest has been here for now 3 years, and our little baby has been here since he was 3 months old. Of course I was really worried taking my infant to daycare, because I have never had to in the past, but the staff here was real reassuring. I breastfeed my baby, and they accommodated my daily visits during lunch and were extremely patient with me. The staff does an amazing job with my boys, and I highly recommend this place to anyone.
My daughter loves it here. She's been here for almost 1 full year. She loves all her teachers (there are 2 morning/2 afternoon). I like the way they all seem to know who your child is and greet them by name--including the front office staff. I would and have recommended this place to family and friends.
