It is not a thing many people would celebrate, but the staff at Northern Door Children’s Center in Sister Bay is thrilled with the number of diapers they will be changing this year. Enrollment in the learning center’s infant class, which begins for kids as young as six weeks old, is up to 16. These young “students” stay together with the same kids and the same teacher until it is time to move on through the center’s infant toddler looping program. Karen Corekin from Northern Door Children’s Center hopes the baby boom continues.
Corekin says the average infant toddler looping program begins with eight to ten babies. The Northern Door Children’s Center hosts classes for kids from infancy through the time they go to kindergarten.
