Singing, reading, talking, and play are basic activities that take place in the classroom. We encourage children to explore and learn about their surrounding environment. Materials and toys are age appropriate that stimulate curiosity. We provide a safe and loving environment. Children learn and grow with the guidance and support of our teachers.

Teachers make sure that each infant’s needs are met, for parents of children that will be in childcare for the first time, we ask that parents follow the same routine at home for a smoother transition:

  1. Always place infants to sleep on their backs in their cribs. Do not allow your infant to stay sleeping on a rocking swing etc. This practice is not allowed at licensed childcares.
  2. Always use sleeveless sleep sacks for infants under 12 months. Swaddles are not allowed at licensed childcares by the State of Colorado
  3. About 2-3 weeks before your transition into CLC, we highly recommend weaning children off of direct breast/chest feeding. We recommend infants drink directly out of their baby bottle from the hours of 7:30am-5pm even at home, as these are CLC infant hours and will make for a seamless transition.
