Programs

At Binky to Backpack Daycare we offer programs for infants, toddlers, and pre-school children.

Infant Childcare

This program accepts infants 6 weeks-24 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.


Program Highlights
  • Ages 6 weeks-24 months
  • We provide all formula, infant cereal and baby food
  • Please provide your infants bottles.
  • Diapers supplied by parents. You may bring a week’s supply at a time
  • “Demand Schedule” where they eat and nap on their own schedule

  • 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

Children with the following symptoms, regardless of the cause, must be kept at home until they have been symptom free for 24 hours:

  • Temperature of 100 (under the arm)
