All of our breastfeeding friendly childcare programs affirm that:
---Breastfeeding families are always welcome and respected. Families will never be treated poorly, asked to stop nursing, or asked to cover up or move.
---All lactating employees are allowed breaks to express milk or nurse their children and have access to a private space for expressing milk or nursing that is not a bathroom. The space is lockable and shielded from view; includes an electrical outlet; and has hand hygiene available.
---They do not advertise infant formula or related products.

In addition, Community School for People Under Six was awarded the NC Breastfeeding Friendly Child Care designation, and Chapel Hill Day Care Center and Future Scholars Childcare received the NCBC Employer & Community Partner award.
