ILLNESS

Please do not bring your child to the Center if he/she is running a fever or has the possibility of a contagious disease. If a child becomes ill while at the Center, the parent will be called so that arrangements can be made for the child to be picked up. We do not assume responsibility for illness. You are required to complete a medication form when your child is to be given medication. The Center is not allowed to give medication without parental consent. The medication should be labeled with the child’s name and dosage of the medicine. We do not medicate for pain or fever.
