Infants can enjoy floor time on quilts with age appropriate toys and caregivers to interact and comfort as needed. Infants needing naps will be provided a safe area in which to rest where they are visible to the childcare staff.
Toddlers and 2-3 year olds will be invited to engage in age appropriate activities with their peers and Childcare Staff. A variety of toys will be available for their enjoyment. A peanut-free snack will be offered to our Toddlers and 2-3 years Olds.
We welcome infants (who have visited the pediatrician at least once) and toddlers through 3 years old (individual developmental issues will be taken into account).
Parents will be required to sign their child(ren) in when dropping Off and out when picking up. Parents will be given a pager when dropping off their Child(ren) which will alert them if needed. The Child(ren) will only be released to the people noted on the Child Information Sheet.
Our Staff is made up off adult volunteers and youth helpers overseen by the Childcare Coordinator. our ratios are: 1 Adult to 3 infants (includes wobbly walkers), 1 Adult to 4 children (Sturdy walkers 2 1/2- 3 years old). We ask that parents who use the Infant/Toddler Rooms on a weekly basis plan to volunteer once a month. Our youth helpers are a wonderful addition to the Childcare team.
