Classroom Policies

Can my breastfeeding baby attend the course with me? We absolutely welcome babies in the classroom. However, crying babies or noisy, active babies or toddlers make it very difficult for the mother and other participants to concentrate on course material. You might want to evaluate whether this is the best time to take a course.
