The nursery is equipped with soothing music, swings, age appropriate toys, high chairs, fridge, microwave, bottle warmers, a seating area for breast-feeding mothers and a cozy sleeping area complete with cribs and bedding. For toddlers who are used to actively playing until lunch time and are accustomed to taking one afternoon nap per day, our caring staff is trained to tune into your child's individual needs and help him or her work through any separation anxiety. Our toddler play area is equipped with age appropriate climbers, toys, books, music, sensory and craft tables. Toddlers nap on mats after lunchtime; linens are provided. Please check in by 10am to allow your toddler time to adjust to his or her new environment before lunch and nap time.
