Holy Cross Academy
  • Time of transition

    The creeper room is a transition room designed to meet the needs of older babies who are beginning to move about, explore their environment, pull to stand, eat table food, drink from a sippy-cup, and nap routinely. The teacher to child ratio is 1:5. The creeper room accommodates a maximum of 10 children. All caregivers are certified in First Aid and CPR.

  • Daily routine

    Children may arrive with breakfast from home up until 8:00 a.m. Caregivers will supplement with bottle feedings in between meals as specified by the parents. Children are provided with lunch at 10:45. All food items are diced into small pieces. Alternate food items are available for children with allergies and/or dietary restrictions. Children are provided with 3 snacks daily, typically at 8:30 am, 2pm and 4pm The caregivers will engage your child in developmentally appropriate activities throughout the day. Children will be taken for stroller rides around the campus of Holy Cross Academy, weather and schedules permitting. The caregivers will try to keep your child awake and engaged in the morning and postpone their nap until 12:00. Once your child is napping consistently from 12-2pm, they will transition from a crib to a nap mat. We recommend purchasing a Closetmaid fabric drawer to keep your child’s belongings contained and secure.

    Information form

    Prior to enrollment, you will fill out additional forms so the teachers will be aware of your child’s specific needs



    Staying in touch

    Caregivers will provide you with a daily report including specifics about your child’s behavior, feeding and sleeping habits throughout the day. Each child has a cubby space for their personal items. Parents must provide diapers, wipes, diaper cream, a sippy-cup, a change of clothes, and a nap blanket to be kept at school. We will administer over-the-counter and prescription medications with signed parent permission. All children must have an up-to-date immunization record at all times. Creepers typically move to the toddler classroom when they are walking steadily, no longer drinking from a bottle, and independently eating table foods.
