In preparation of your infant transition into CLC, 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. Always transfer your infant to their crib as soon as they fall asleep.
  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 4-6 weeks before your transition into CLC, we highly recommend weaning infants off for a smooth transition.
  4. Infant parents will be required to come in the week before their infants first day to demonstrate that their infant is able to take milk directly from their baby bottle.
