The sick child care promotes the health, safety and well-being of mildly ill children, who have contracted health issues such as upper respiratory illness, gastrointestinal disorders or other mildly contagious disorders. Students are accepted into the facility on a first come, first served basis when unable to attend school or daycare due to illness.

Program Details

The sick child care program provides a safe environment for mildly ill children to rest and recuperate. Licensed nurses and teachers care for students who have contracted minor illnesses in a child care setting. Examples of minor illnesses include:

  • Upper respiratory illness
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Other mildly contagious illnesses

The facility does not accept students who have contracted influenza or COVID-19.

For the safety of staff and students, a health assessment must be completed over the phone with a nurse prior to arrival. Assessments are made when the facility opens at 7:30 a.m. each business day. Students are accepted into the program on a first-come, first-served basis. Classrooms are categorized by illness to minimize the spread of contagions. Children are overseen by licensed nurses and sick child care staff.

Fees must be paid at drop-off. Exact cash required.
