At The Sunshine House of Buckhead, your baby will explore and learn in a nurturing, loving environment that provides the warmth and security your infant is used to receiving at home. In our infant daycare nursery, we utilize the primary caregiver system. A specific teacher will be your baby’s main caregiver and will work closely with you to provide consistency with your existing feeding, playing and sleeping schedules.
