We pay special attention to germ control during cold and flu season. Our teachers are extra-vigilant during this time and pay close attention to each child to assess their health. We keep track of illnesses and sickness through a symptom log report, which is reviewed on a monthly basis. We also help parents by providing resources and tips for keeping your kids healthy in our e-newsletter. If your child falls ill during the school day, we will notify you to make you aware of the situation so that you and the Center can decide on the best course of action.

For more information, please see your Center Director and find out how you can schedule an immunization today.
