Playing toddlers

Infants are nurtured and read to and engaged in play with a variety of infant developmental toys and books. Feeding and nap schedules vary for each child at this age. As babies are able to eat "table food," we will feed them items listed on the provided menus and adapt as needed for this age group. Until then, parents will need to provide formula and infant meals/snacks.*

Parents are asked to provide directions on how they would like to have their baby's formula prepared or warmed (bottle warmer, tap water, etc.) if you prefer us to prepare fresh bottles, please provide the formula. Parents may also send in bottled water if they prefer formula made with that. Otherwise, we will use tap water. We can also store larger pre-made portions of formula to pour into bottles, or frozen or fresh pre-portioned bottles of breast milk or formula. Please provide one extra bottle or extra milk/formula for emergencies. Please label all bottles and bottle caps.

Parents are asked to provide diapers, wipes, bottles/sippy cups, baby food*, and three changes of seasonal clothes. If you prefer to have diaper rash ointment/paste or powder applies, you must provide these items as well. We cannot allow pillows, blankets, wedges or sleep toys in this stage of care. We suggest that families provide infant "Sleep Sacks" and layered clothing for warmth during naps.

*Parents must provide all food/beverages for infants until they are able to eat table food.

Babies are not permitted to sleep in a swing for naptime unless the parent has written permission from the pediatrician stating that sleeping in an upright position, such as in a swing, is conducive to proper digestion due to reflux issues. Otherwise, please prepare your baby to nap in a crib or Pack-and-Play. Younger infants will sleep in a crib initially, and then move to a Pack-and-Play once they are a bit older.

Once a child is able to walk well, they will move into the toddler room. As a group, children will take part socializing, learning concepts through play, and have fun growing intellectually, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Teachers read books to the children and provide fun art projects and engaging sensory activities. 


Children will have the opportunity to play outside each day (weather permitting). We also have a full-size gymnasium to allow children ample room to play when weather does not allow for outside play time. Outdoor play is prohibited when temperatures are above 90 or below 45 degrees.

Nutritious lunches and snacks daily, plus milk, juice and/or water, are provided in the weekly tuition. At this level, children are generally weaned from baby food and bottles, and we will begin offering lunch from our menu. Please let us know of any special dietary needs or food allergies to ensure your child's safety. Parents are welcome to bring in all food for their child if they prefer to supply food from home.

Parents are asked to provide diapers (or Pull-Ups), wipes, two sippy cups for water and milk/juice, and a change of seasonal clothes. You may bring in large boxes of diapers and wipes, but they must be labeled.

After lunch, children will lie down for a nap with their designated nap mats or cots that we provide. Parents are asked to provide a blanket, pillow and sleep toy, if desired. Your child will use the same mat each day. Parents may take home blankets to wash as often as needed.
