Infant Classroom

We are a small classroom with 12 infants and 3 teachers. We have a flexible schedule for the children, which is outlined below. We will happily coordinate our feeding times to your schedule if you would like to visit the classroom to breastfeed. We have several places within the school where you are welcome to feed your child. Parents may choose to use cloth diapers, and if you choose these diapers we will gladly accommodate you. Please know that the flow of communication is always open and it is important to the Infant class teachers that we are accessible to our families.
