Parents of infants younger than 12 months have the option of using the center’s formula (at no cost) and making their bottles here each day, or bringing bottles of their own formula or breast milk from home each morning. All bottles should be labeled with the date and baby’s name. Breast milk can be stored in the Infant freezer for up to three months if dated and labeled. Mothers are welcome to visit and nurse their baby during the day. At 12 months of age, we work with parents to transition the babies to cups and whole milk.

All babies are on their own schedule in a warm, nurturing environment. Our caring staff provides age-appropriate activities such as tummy time, music, stories, and play time. Sign language and language development are strongly encouraged. Milestones are recognized and celebrated!
