Our Infant Care Program
We maintain a small infant care area, where we care for no more than four babies at a time. The Infant Room and its equipment are kept apart from the rest of the facility to maintain a sanitary environment for our infants. Our babies receive very special care from our dedicated baby whisperer. Plus we maintain a baby/adult ratio of 4:1.
Please see our pricing page for the latest hourly and full/part-time rates.
We have a shoe-free policy for anyone entering the Infant Room. A daily activity sheet will be sent

How does your child sleep? Swaddled, rocked to sleep, do you practice CIO? Is your child easily awoken or are they sound sleepers?
First Stay Information
Please make sure all required forms are completed. We must have a copy of the most recent vaccination record and a full health form filled out by the child’s physician’s office within 45 days. Infant health forms are due every time the child has a well-child visit. (4 mo, 6 mo, 9 mo, and 12 mo) You will sign your child into our facility every stay. Infants have a different sign-in sheet than older children.
We try to be as accommodating as we can be with all of our families. Please let us know what milestones your child has hit or is working on, we will work with them while they are in our care. Please read through our facility handbook and if you have any other questions, please contact us.
