Infant Schedule Rates
We are here to help meet the needs of working parents who face the challenge of balancing work and family responsibilities. Moreover, we are here to help meet the needs of babies for consistent, loving, quality care while their parents have to be at work. The baby’s most important companions are the parents especially during the critical first year of life and we encourage parents to spend as much time as possible with their little ones. We offer the flexibility of several options to choose from so you can tailor our program to meet your needs.
Research shows that bonding with a consistent caregiver is important for healthy infant development. In order to provide the most consistent care, we have scheduled the program to fit within an eight-hour workday for our staff. This eliminates the need for shift changes and multiple caregivers, which can be upsetting and confusing to babies. We maintain a ratio of 3 babies to each caregiver. One of our staff members will be available for early care from 7:00 to 8:30 am., and one will be available for late afternoon care from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. To meet our ratios, we can care for only 3 babies during these times. These spaces will be filled on a first come-first served basis.

A new Toddler Enrollment Contract must be completed when your child is ready to enter the Toddler Program. A new Infant Program Enrollment Contract must be completed if your child has previously withdrawn from the Infant Program and is re-enrolling. New rates may apply at that time.
