Welcome and Thank you for your interest in Brass Ring Learning Centers West Mifflin Infant Childcare program.
The West Mifflin Infant childcare staff of the Brass Ring Learning Center, take the time to discuss with parents their child’s habits and routines. We are then able to create an individualized daily care plan for your infant. The individualized infant care plan goes over all aspects of care from potential allergies, feeding schedules, types of foods and formulas as well as napping schedule to play times.
We strongly urge parents to communicate daily with our infant childcare staff and Director to let us know of any changes in your infants’ routine. Feeding schedule changes, introduction of new food, teething, general fussiness or even a pick up from care change.
Our Lead Teacher for the West Mifflin Infant childcare program , as well as the Director, performs bi-annual infant developmental assessments on each infant in our care. We do these developmental assessments to be sure that every infant is on track for their age. The results of the assessment are available for parents to review. We use the results as a daily guide so that we are able to develop a better experience for the babies.
Our Infant care room is filled with toys and plays items that is stimulating and age appropriate. We provide belly and back time for the infants as well as playtime on their own. Our staff members spend a great amount of their time playing with and teaching the infants how to explore new play items as well as interacting with the other infants.
Our West Mifflin Unit, Infant group, staff members are selected for their warmth of personality and their commitment to providing the highest quality Infant childcare that parents expect. Each member of our Infant care group as well as our entire childcare staff is trained in Infant and Child First Aid and CPR. All certifications are kept up to date and are renewed on the American Red Cross and Heart Association recommended renewal basis. When we hire new staff for any of our Early Learning programs we arrange for them to participate in one of the classes as soon as possible.
Infants in our care are assigned their own cribs. All of our cribs meet current US Government standards for cribs. Parents may provide cribs sheets to fit the cribs or as an added convenience we have crib sheets that fit the mattresses available to parents for purchase at a nominal fee. Crib sheets should be labeled with the infants name or initials. We strongly urge parent to label every item that is brought from home with the infant’s initials. Our infant childcare staff will be sure to check items and initial any items that have not been labeled.
Because we are very concerned for the health and well being of all of the infants in our care, we ask that parents notify our staff of any illnesses or doctor visits requiring shots. We also ask parents to take off shoes before entering our infant care areas. We are better able to keep carpeting clean and foreign objects off of the floors where our infants play.
We utilize security pass code locks at both of our centers. We give the code to each family and ask that they only pass it on to immediate family members. We change these codes from time to time. We will also ask anyone who is picking up a child from care for identification. Children are only released to someone other than parents only with written parental consent and the individual provides us with picture ID. Our centers are also equipped with CCTV that records 24 hours a day.
