Each child must obtain a pre-admission and current physical and immunization. These forms will be provided by the center. We ask that you return these forms to us on the first day of attendance. According to State Licensing requirements and the protection of all children, if you do not have the necessary forms, your child(ren) will not be allowed to attend Day Care.
