When Ruby was around 16 months old she was sent to the Infant Program to receive early education. When lying on a cushion she liked to reach out her hands to play with the toys on the shelf.  She would grin when happy and smile when her name is called. When toys were moved in front of her she could follow them with her eyes.  She liked laying in her cradle and would suck her fingers when sleeping.

At the time of her report she was 17 months old and would cry when she needed something.  If her needs were met she would calm down.  She liked toys with bright colors and when lying by the toys shelf she would reach out her hands to hold them. Ruby was said to be a deep sleeper who was imitating words. She was a quiet girl with a ready smile and fond of listening to music.
