Infants deserve individualized care that is respectful to their personal wake, sleep and feeding patterns. Our caregivers are trained to support infant development and provide opportunities for each infant to engage, discover, and explore their classroom. Our infant staff engage and support language development and provide opportunities for personal time with each infant throughout the day.
The Cottage School is a certified Boulder County Breastfeeding Friendly child care site. Our Infant Staff will work personally with parents to support their feeding choices. When infants are ready to begin solid foods, staff and parents work together to provide meals that are appropriate for the infants age and development. The Cottage School has a licensed kitchen with staff who are trained in proper food handling and the necessary meal components for proper nutrition. Parents are also allowed to provide their own foods for their infant.
Our Infant Nursery Supervisors are Early Childhood Teacher qualified and have completed additional coursework in infant development, practice, theory and safe sleep. All Cottage School Infant Staff are Pediatric CPR & 1st Aid certified and trained in using infant massage.
