INFANT & TODDLER CARE (newborn - 24 months)
The nursery is fully equipped with soothing music, swings, age appropriate toys and climbers for toddlers, high chairs, fridge, microwave, bottle warmers and more. A seating area for breast-feeding mothers and a cozy sleeping area complete with mats, cribs, clean linens and blankets round out the space.
Our professional staff will tend to your little one’s individual needs & schedule and will help him or her work through any separation anxiety. The infant to staff ratio is 4:1. Please allow for a few minutes in the morning to communicate to staff typical routines, special needs, likes and dislikes your baby may have. A daily report documents your infant’s feeding, napping and diapering times throughout the day.

What to pack*: Lunch, snacks, bottles, (frozen breast milk is fine…if formula – pre-mixed, ready to feed is preferred), pre-filled sippy cup, diapers, wipes, spare set of clothing and any “comfort items” (such as a pacifier, special blanket or toy). Lunch and snacks are provided; free of charge, for babies who can eat what is on the menu for the older kids for the day. (i.e. chicken nuggets, pizza, macaroni & cheese along with veggies and fruit.)
*Please label all bottles, food containers, cups, pacifiers, etc. Pre-labeling your child’s belongings will expedite the check-in process and get you “out on the hill” sooner!
Outside time: Typically, we do not take this age group outside due to the cold winter temperatures. On a warm spring day, we may take the toddlers on a walk or in a stroller.
Visiting or “checking in” on my baby: unless you are nursing, we recommend parents call versus checking in. Often times, babies do not understand that you are “just visiting.” If your baby had a difficult time settling in during morning drop off, a mid day visit then another good bye may upset your child all over again. Alternatively, we recommend you calling as often as you like, or leave your cell # for our staff to contact you based on the criteria you set forth.
Availability: Infant/toddler care may not be available every day at both locations. Our infant care spaces are very limited and sell out quickly. To purchase BOOK ONLINE or call 800.MAMMOTH / 800.626.6684.
