Opportunities for parents of children under two years old
The Infant/Community room is a unique opportunity offered at NPNS. Parents with children under 2 years can still participate in the NPNS community and ready their child to embark on their preschool adventure.
What this option looks like:
On your work day, you and the other parents of children under 2 years old will be working together to take care of the infants in a separate space in the school and will rotate on an availability basis in and out of the classroom, you as a group count as one working parent. For example, if your baby is sleeping soundly you may have the opportunity to be in the classroom and help out on a project or work in a particular area while another parent keeps watch. Once your baby wakes up and needs you, then the other parent in the infant room can alert you and trade spots with you ensuring that the under two’s are being taken care of and the preschoolers have a parent helper as well.
Infant room is available 9-12 pm only on designated days. This is not a teacher facilitated program. Care of infants is shared among parents utilizing the community room.
