Curriculum and Information about our Infant Program
Infant classes follow a daily schedule. Each child has a daily form which is filled out with their daily activities, naps, feedings, diaper changes and if they need anything for the following day. The parents need to provide formula or breast milk for their child until they are eating and drinking whole milk.
