We participate in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program. It is a federal program that provides reimbursement for nutritious meals and snacks. In addition, we are a TOP Star endorsed center. TOP Star stands for Teaching Obesity Prevention. We regularly review and set goals in nutrition, Physical Activity, and Breastfeeding to promote healthy lifestyles for children and families. 

Our nutrition specialist creates menus and prepares meals with variety, exposure, and deliciousness in mind! We accommodate food allergies and sensitivities based on the child's needs. Some substitutions may require a doctor's note. We serve breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. Infants are fed on demand. When children are 3 and older, they will eat “family style,” allowing the children to learn how to serve themselves and portion their food. During this time caregivers sit at the table with the children, eat, and engage in meaningful conversations.

Parent Communication

Effective communication is an important element of our care for your children. We always encourage regular and open face-to-face conversations between CFH staff, teachers, and parents to help best meet the needs of your child! In addition to these discussions, we will use a variety of tools to help facilitate good communication between parents and CFH Staff.

The CFH teachers and staff will be using the Brightwheel App to send regular newsletters and individual messages about your child. This app will allow for easy communication while keeping parent and teacher phone numbers and contact information private. Brightwheel has the capacity to send and receive pictures, messages, and to easily track other activities such as diaper changes and naps. We will also use Brightwheel for electronic, hands-free sign in and out. Every parent should download the Brightwheel app on your personal phone.



This classroom is for our youngest infants, 6 weeks to 12 months. We take care of each child on their own schedule, providing naps, feedings, and diapering. We accommodate breastfeeding mothers, as well as formula fed babies. We have stackable cribs so that every baby has a comfortable place to sleep. Our classroom is full of developmentally appropriate toys for our babies to play with and explore. From teething toys that are soft and safe to chew, to our balance bar, there is a toy for every infant's interest. Even at this young age we do fun activities that help with fine motor, gross motor, and social-emotional development. In this class we do lots of tummy time, and get to help infants learn to rollover, sit up, and sometimes even crawl. We love to talk and sing to the infants and hear them coo and babble back to us. 


We have infants from 4-18 months in our space. Our classroom is attached to the original kitchen from the President's home. This allows us to have quick access to breast milk, formula, and baby food. We individualize care for each infant. Feeding, diapering, and naps are on the child’s own schedule. We have many types of toys to help with fine motor, gross motor, and social emotional development for our infants. Infants in this class usually start learning how to sit up on their own, how to crawl, and sometimes even begin to walk! This is also the class where we start incorporating baby food and table food into the infant's diet, with permission from the caregiver. We are a play based room. Infants learn best through play, so we incorporate things like math and science into play. We play music, sing, and talk to the infants all the time, so the class is rarely quiet. 

Living Room- 

In the living room class, babies 8 months to 20 months are able to explore their environment and expand their vocabulary and emotional development through interactive play. The class enjoys exploring art and sensory activities that encourage gross and fine motor skills. The schedule is adaptable and works to each child’s interests and needs. 


In the Flex classroom, we care for children 18 months to 3 years. The children are introduced to various methods of learning through art, music, dramatic play, free play, outside time, and sensory experiences. All these experiences provide opportunities for the children to develop both their large and fine motor skills, as well as social-emotional skills. The children are also introduced to large group activities, such as Circle Time, where they learn songs and read books. We love focusing on the interests of our students and helping them explore the world around them!


Our Loft class has children from ages 2-4. In our class we focus on fine motor skills, social-emotional skills, art, literacy, science, math, gross motor, music and dramatic play. We love to read books together, love to have sensory experiences together, and love to use our imaginations to learn and explore different things that they see in their community. Our children are constantly learning about the world around them and how it works using all their different modalities.

Jr Prek-

Our Jr. Pre-K classroom has children from ages 3-6. In our classroom we love to play! Most of our day is spent playing and gaining self-help skills. Each day children have access to a variety of experiences including art materials, a sensory table, dramatic play, blocks, a science center, books and reading, math and manipulatives, large and small motor activities, and semi-structured group times both inside and outside of the classroom. Lessons are planned based on the interests of the children in our classroom, and we love exploring and learning together. We send out weekly newsletters to our parents to update them of the things happening in our classroom and to give them a little peek into our week. One of our favorite things about our classroom is we have two really fun class pets. Oreo and Cocoa are our two Guinea pigs and we love getting them out and playing with them, snuggling with them, feeding them, and watching them grow.  We love having special visitors in our space, and we invite families to share the things that are special to them with us in our class.
