Infant Childcare

Our Younger Infant Classrooms have highly qualified, professional infant teachers. The rooms feature infant sleeping coves to create more floor time for the babies. Our research and the State of Oregon has recommended this as a way to encourage babies to sleep and move without the confinements of cribs. Please click on this link: My CMLC News!: Creative Minds Infant Sleeping Coves designed for safety to read more about why we do not use cribs in our classrooms. With the sleeping coves, the classroom can evolve to the needs of the babies and is easily moveable. These babies have opportunities to experience the outdoors from their classroom, art experiences, sensory and visual stimulation.
