Parents are asked to keep their child at home if they are sick. If a child is brought to the center and they are sick, parents will be contacted to come and pick up their child immediately. You will not be reimbursed for the number of days the child is away sick, and due to child/teacher ratios you will not be able to "make up" sick time by bringing your child on unscheduled days. For more info on our sick policy please refer to our Parent Handbook.

  • any infant related food your child might require
