Nursing Staff is on site during program hours daily. The RN and LPN at Grow Learning Centre cares for your child for a variety of his or her needs. If your child falls ill or is injured at Grow Learning Centre, the nurse assesses the child, provides immediate care, and contacts the parent or guardian to discuss further needs. He or she will also store and administer medications as well as provide nursing services that your child may have such as tube feeding or wound care. We take the health and safety of your child very seriously as we know it affects their daily performance. We want your child to feel their best every single day!
