Welcome to Mrs Irma’s Infant Classroom.
This classroom has a 4:1 ratio
-Bottles: Parents are required to bring prepared bottles for their child/children on a daily basis. Please label all bottles and lids. A refrigerator is available in the classroom for storage of bottles until use. All bottles will be heated before serving. Bottles may be used up to 1 hour after heating; after that time left over milk will be disposed of and bottles rinsed before sending home. If you would like leftover milk to remain in the bottle to be sent home please notify your teachers and the director.
-Feeding Charts: State requires a feeding chart to be completed every 30 days or any time changes are made to your child’s diet. For convenience, forms are sent out at the beginning of every month. You may find a copy of the feeding chart attached below. When your child is ready for baby food or table food, please let the director know how we can assist you.
-Supplies: We provide bibs, burp clothes, and sheets to each child. If wanting to bring your own please make sure they are labeled so that they find their way back to the correct family.
– Extra changes of clothes are request for your child for life’s little mishaps.
-Diaper cubbies are provided for each child. Your teachers will notify parents as they are running low on diapers or wipes.
– Sleeping arrangements: Each child is provided a pack n play at school. State mandates: Children must sleep on their backs in a crib/pack N play (no swings or bouncers) until they are able to roll over on their own. They may not have anything (ie blankets etc) in the crib with them until they are 12 months old.
-Pacifiers: You may provide pacifiers for use while at school; if you choose to do so please make sure that your child’s pacifier is labeled. Pacifiers may be used during sleeping time, rest time, or for soothing. Pacifiers will not be available to a child that is mobile outside of these time frames to prevent injury to gums and/or teeth.
