Healthy Kids

Children learn best when they are happy and healthy. That’s why we employ a nurse full-time. She’s available to help meet the physical, emotional, nutritional, and social well-being of our children and to support, advise and answer questions from families, too. Each of our staff is also first aid and CPR trained.

(This may be changed if the Governor or the Departure of Public Health issues a weather alert or advisory.)
