Eugene Creative Care extends the invitation to you the parent or any extended family member who is authorized on your enrollment agreement to share any special traditions, talents, or skills you would like to share with your child’s class. Visits of this nature must be pre-arranged with the Center Director and your child’s teacher.
Please note, if your child is breastfed, we encourage mothers to visit our nursery to feed their child as often as they would like. Pumped breast milk must come already expressed into premeasured bottles which Teachers will store in a refrigerator until the time of use. Please label this with your child's name and the date. If your child is formula or jar food fed, families are responsible for providing these foods on a regular basis. Formula does not need to be premixed. All bottles and jar foods will be warmed according to your child’s schedule and family preferences by a bottle warmer located inside the classroom. Empty used bottles, whether containing breast milk or formula, will be placed with your child’s belongings after each use. Bottles are not cleaned or sterilized at our facility. If you would like your child’s teacher to save used food jars for you, please let them know. Table foods are provided by the center unless your child or family has or prefers a special diet other than what is listed on the monthly service menu.
Our programs offer family style meal service for toddler and preschool age children. This means we encourage self-serving, individual child size place settings, and casual conversation while dining.
NOTE: Infants feeding schedules change frequently, please keep your child’s teacher informed of new feeding schedules and foods.
Diapers, specialty wipes other than what brand our site uses, diaper cream if needed, pull ups, and at least two extra sets of clothing should be kept at the center and replaced on a weekly basis. You should communicate with your child’s teacher to determine the quantity and what your child’s needs will be. Diapering checks will be performed no less than once per hour, if not more. The diaper will be changed regardless of how full it may be on a 2 hour or less basis.
ECC works in partnership with parents to conduct the Ages and Stages Developmental Questionnaire (ASQ-3) with your child within 30 days, after 6 months and then annually to help ensure your child is making healthy strides in his/her development.
