Handling Northern Door's baby boom

Handling its biggest class of infants in several years is no easy task, but Northern Door Children’s Center in Sister Bay continues to be up for the challenge. The early childhood center currently has 17 infants enrolled, nearly twice of its usual amount. This means the center has had to dedicate more staff to the room so each infant gets the care and guidance they need at their young age. Karen Corekin-De La Mer from Northern Door Children’s Center says this is a crucial time for the child’s development.

More teachers mean more expenses to care for the infants, which is why the creation of the New Infant Assistance Fund was so important. In honor of its dog Nia, the NIA was established by a donor family to help reduce the cost for parents requiring infant care for their kids.
