The infant room has a very flexible schedule.  The infant room is designed to foster and cultivate your child’s natural curiosity about the world around them.  Here are a few rules that 5280 Early Childhood Education Center has regarding our infant room.


• Breast milk and formula must be pre-made (according to manufacture directions) every day that your child is at the center.
• All infants under the age of 6 months will be held when bottle-feeding.
• Bottles will never be allowed in cribs.
• Formula and breast milk bottles will never be warmed in a microwave.
• All bottles need to be taken at the end of the day, any bottle left will be emptied and put in your child’s mailbox.
• Teachers must not mix cereal with formula or breast milk unless written instructions from your child’s physician are provided. 
• Your child will be placed on their back and in their crib for all naps.
• Infants will be changed every 2 hours unless needed before.

• We do not condone container syndrome; therefore, this is why we have limited bouncy seats and swings​.

Our on site chef prepares all infant food for our students, purees will be served to our older infants with permission from families.

No infant will be allowed in a crib with a blanket unless they are over the age of 12 months.  All infants under the age of 12 months will be provided a sleep sac.

During the summer, spring and fall time our infants are outside every day from 10:25-10:45.

We believe our infants, and all children, are more than a number.  The State ratio for infants is 1:5, and our ratio is 1:4 when the classroom is at its full capacity of 8.
