This classroom is designed for babies who are crawling up to 12 months. As you can see in the pictures, the entire crawling area is carpeted. We have a no shoes policy in this classroom to keep it as clean as possible for crawling babies. There is an intercom directly linked with the office for the safety of your child. There is also a fridge/freezer in the classroom to accommodate parents bringing in breastmilk or baby food. The ratio in this classroom is 4 babies to one teacher. Parents in this classroom must provide the following:
1.Crib sheets (sheets are changed daily so we ask that you bring in enough for the week)
2.Bottles (Parkdale can provide bottles but if there is a certain brand that you use or prefer, please bring them in. Bottles that you bring in can be left at Parkdale or taken home daily/weekly)
3.Changes of clothes- accidents happen!
4.Formula or breastmilk (we ask that you bring "backup" milk or formula to make sure there is never a situation where we have nothing to give your child.)
In this room, each child has their own crib which no other child will use. There are swings, bouncers, walkers for the more daring babies, bouncy seats and several different kinds of toys that both entertain and educate!
