Part Time Programs

Child Care Centers for special needs children in Delaware

Pediatric Medical Day Care | Before & After School / School Break | Summer Care

Nurses ’n Kids Pediatric Programs are for infants and children with special needs. Attendance in our programs may be full or part time based on your child’s special needs and based on your needs as the parent or guardian. Once your child becomes school age, your child may continue to attend our Medical Day Care if your child is medically fragile. If your child is medically stable, your child may transition to school and can still receive the great benefits of Nurses ’n Kids by attending our Summer Care and Before & After School / School Break programs – guidelines may vary based on the school district. Please contact Nurses ’n Kids to discuss your child’s special healthcare needs and how our Pediatric Programs can make an amazing difference for your child.
