The Buttercup Class

Our Buttercup classroom cares for infants 6 weeks to approximately one year old. Our teachers’ main focus is to form relationships based on trust and care with each child and family in the class. In the Buttercup room, we follow each baby’s individual schedule; napping on demand and following the eating schedule discussed with families upon enrollment. Since infants eating habits in their first year change and evolve, it is our priority to maintain continuous communication with families so we can keep updated as baby’s habits change. We work with each child’s family to determine their individual readiness to move to the next class, generally basing that decision on factors like mobility, eating table food, and readiness to transition to a more structured schedule.
