Sick Policy: To keep all of our enrolled children healthy, we do not provide care for children who are contagious. A child with a fever, vomiting, diarrhea , thick nasal drainage, pink eye, or an unexplained rash, will be sent home. In order to return with symptoms still present, they must have a doctor's note stating that those particular symptoms are not contagious. We are careful to wash the children's hands and maintain a clean environment.

Daily Needs: Parents should supply a change of clothes for each child regardless of their age. Parents of infants and toddlers are required to provide diapers and wipes. Your child will have a busy day so please make sure they are well rested upon arrival.
