Infants (6 weeks - 16 months)


According to the MN licensing rule, a child is considered to be an infant until the age of 16 months. We are licensed to have 4 infants in our center. For infants we offer high quality care in a safe, healthy and a home-like environment. We have a separate baby room with approved cribs and toys. Every day we fill out a daily report for each infant about what and how much the baby ate, when and how long the baby slept, about the mood and activities, and all fun details about the diaper changes :)

We do supply baby food, but we do not supply formula. If an infant is using breast milk, the parents must correctly estimate the amount of milk needed for a day’s feeding. Milk should be delivered to Sunflower Daycare in bottles, which must be labeled with the child’s first and last name and the time of breast milk collection. If your infant is using formula, the formula of the baby preference should be provided by families. As with breast milk, all bottles must be labeled with the child’s first and last name. All used bottles would be returned at the end of the day for cleaning.

Once our infants start walking and gain strength, we start transitioning them to toddlers, at least for a few minutes every day. Our infants have a chance to play in the toddler area once toddlers are in class or having meals.


All of our teachers are highly trained in infant care and have passed specialized trainings in SIDS and CPR. We follow each child's individual schedule to remain consistent with the schedule at home. Through observation, getting to know your child and consistent parent/teacher communication, we build a loving, joyful relationship with your child.
