The Infant Care Center provides experienced staff who are trained to provide a nurturing environment of trust and sensitivity to each infant’s needs. The staff realize that each individual infant is a separate functioning being who needs specific care and guidance and who is allowed to develop at his/her own pace. The staff observe each infant daily. Infants have freedom to explore and interact with other infants through one-to-one play, small group activities, and have time for individual uninterrupted play. Infants are on personal sleep and feeding schedules.
Housed in Grace Luthern Church, the Grace Infant Care Center is governed by a board of directors composed of five to seven members. Up to two of these member positions is available to a parent of an infant enrolled in the center.
The center supplies two snacks, plates, bowls, cups, utensils, bibs, burp cloths, individual cribs, sheets, blankets, one 4-seat stroller, and two 6-seat strollers, as well as an abundance of
learning and play equipment.
Parents are required to provide milk, formula, lunch, diapers and clothing for daily needs. Bottles are brought from home.
As of January 2020 our tuition is $2,200 per month at the time of admission and is payable by the fifth of each month. There are no deductions for vacations, sick days, holidays or shutdowns in compliance with city and state mandates.
