Infant Care


This program accepts infants 6 weeks – 12 months and is designed with your little one in mind. We follow what is called an “on demand” schedule. This means that we cater our schedule to meet the individual demands of your infant. If he or she wants to eat, sleep, or play, that is what we do. We want to get to know your baby and his or her needs as quickly as possible. You can help by letting us know likes and dislikes, sleeping positions, or anything that will help your child’s care go more smoothly.

Careful attention given to hygiene. All surfaces and toys are cleaned with bleach water throughout the day as needed

Diaper checks are done hourly. We keep track of bowel movements and diaper change times

Gloves are worn during diaper changes. We wash our hands every time we change a diaper, wipe a nose and always before feeding or handling food or bottles

We keep and provide parents with accurate daily records of the kinds and amounts of food and drink given to their child
