Butterhill opened its Infant /Toddler Center in Cornwall in 2008 to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children of working parents. In the infant room each child is provided with their own comfortable crib, cubby and diaper locker labeled with their name for their use only. Parents provide a daily schedule for our caregivers to follow. Daily sheets are completed to advise parents of their child’s feedings, naps and diaper changing. In the toddler room, children are introduced to a more structured day. Part of the curriculum includes circle time, where students practice calendar, weather, colors, numbers, shapes and letters. They also make art projects and are encouraged to use their imagination. Parents are provided each month with a schedule of planned activities.
We believe in fresh air. Children go out to the playground whenever weather permits. The infants go on walks in carriages built for four. They love visiting the Town's Duck Pond.

Sherry Bunt( Miss Sherry), Director Butterhill has been a huge part of my life since 2002 when my daughter Mackenzie first started attending at 18 months of age. I went from my child crying everyday at her old daycare, to crying each day to COME to Butterhill. Nine years later my four year old son happily attends Butterhill Day School. When your child is happy, you are happy. I am married with two beautiful children. I received my B.S. in Psychology from SUNY Oneonta and my M.S. in Counseling from Mercy College. I have been working at Butterhill since 2005. Most of the teachers in the Infant/Toddler Center have been with us since we opened. There is a real unity and feeling of family between the teachers and the children here. Miss Lori with masters in early childhood and Miss Michelle are the care givers in the infant room. They have been a part of the center since it's opening. Their goal is to work closely with parents to maintain their children's particular schedules. Miss Sherry and Miss Nelsida are teachers in the Toddler 1 room. Miss Nelsida has been with Butterhill for over 20 years. Every child is a "pretty girl" or a "handsome boy" to her.
