You are welcome to bring snacks and drinks for your child. We ask that you please label all items with your child’s name.
How do you address the issue of sick children?
If a child becomes sick while in our care, we will contact the parent or guardian and ask that the child be picked up in a timely manner. The state has a comprehensive policy on the guidelines for accepting ill children into our care, and it is available upon request for your review. Our parent handbook also outlines in detail our procedures for handling sick children.
