Dear Infant/Toddler Parents;
As a routine, Ms. Elise will go in and check our infant room for sanitation purposes. We must follow so many guidelines to meet sanitation inspections and child care state guidelines. Would you please read the following information below and note that we must work together to follow the policies to continue to provide quality care? Attached you will find a copy of Brentwood Childcare Center’s Infant/Toddler Safe Sleep Policy. If you have not read this document, please do so. We should have a copy on file with each parent’s signature. We have also attached a copy of our feeding schedule. All children under fifteen months must have this form completed and signed by their parents and must be posted in our classrooms. Would you mind updating this form as your child’s eating habits change? If you are aware that your child can roll over, please complete the document posted on their cribs.
Parents must supply the following for their child; Diapers, wipes, change of clothes (seasonal), bibs, and bottles.
Bottles; must be prepared at home and ready for use. We cannot serve a bottle if the following guidelines are not met.
Bottles must smell and look clean, inside and out, nipples, and cap.
Bottle and cap must be labeled with child’s name (first and last name) and current date.
We can only serve bottles that include the following liquids, formula, milk & water. Please do not add cereal, medication & juice, or any other products. If the contents of the bottles look or smell as though they have any unknown additive, we will refuse to serve it and pour it out. The administration will call parents to bring additional bottles. Please be advised that this is for the safety of your child and other children that we take care of. We are thanking you in advance for helping us follow the sanitation guidelines for our infant room.
If you have any questions, you may stop by the office.
Please note that there are examples of bottles. Parents are to supply their children with the number of bottles they will drink during their time in school. Bottles cannot be refilled by staff. All bottles, including if you bring a bottle to school that your child may be drinking from, must have the cap with it as well as labeled.
Infant room staff will not be permitted to Label or serve bottles that are not labeled correctly nor have any cereals, syrups, juice, or medications added.
