Infants

 

Babies are enrolled in the Nursery Classroom at six weeks of age and generally will move out at approximately one year of age. The babies are on their own schedule. They will eat when they are hungry and sleep when they are tired. Parents are responsible for bringing their own formula or breast milk, baby food, diapers, and wipes. Each baby has his or her own crib. Sheets are changed daily and toys are disinfected daily as well. Parents should fill out the daily infant sheet when they arrive in the morning and pick up the sheet when they leave at night.

The Nursery curriculum centers around large motor skills, fine motor skills, music, and language. There is a great deal of floor time spent with every baby every day and a baby is not left in his or her crib if they are awake. Weather permitting; the babies will go outside twice daily.
