About The Infant Care Program

Our Philosophy  "Babies Rock!"- Dana Mudd, Founder/Owner of Papoose Preschool & Infant Care

We create an environment where infants and toddlers can explore, taste, touch, crawl, walk, run, and experiment in physical and emotional safety.  We truly believe that all children learn more easily and quickly when they feel safe. 
We accept children 6 months - 36 months in the Infant/Toddler program.

In the fall of 2009, we became a Cloth Diaper Only facility as part of our
commitment to the environment and children's health. We require all children in our care to be in a cloth diapers. We have seen a 75% reduction in waste, earlier and easier potty training, and (in our opinion) happier children.  To read more about the benefits of cloth diapers, please visit the Real Diaper Association.  To purchase the cloth diapers that current customers recommend  click here.
