Brooklyn Preschool’s nursery program benefits our members with babies and toddlers. Siblings of Brooklyn students who are not yet age-eligible for preschool can go to our on-site nursery during their family’s parent-teaching shifts. Our CPR and first-aid-certified nursery provider of 5 years has been a member of our community since her own children attended Brooklyn.
Newborn babies can be worn on their parent in the classroom during parent-teaching shifts, up to six months of age. Breastfeeding opportunities are available and encouraged!
Nursery services are available only to members who are parent teaching in the classroom that day, so no more than four children are in the nursery at a time. Member families are scheduled to work in the classroom 2 to 3 times a month, so nursery families can expect to use the nursery at the same frequency.
Nursery services do come with extra costs. Each nursery day is billed at $20. Insurance must be purchased for nursery children in the amount of $35 per semester ($70 per year). Nursery families also have an additional fundraising obligation of $35 per year.
