CHILDCARE GUIDELINES

The ABWE nursery supports parents by providing for the physical and emotional needs of the children of ABWE parents during training and other scheduled events.

ABWE provides the following guidelines to provide the best possible care for children of ABWE parents during training and scheduled events. It is our desire to protect the health and safety of both children and child care workers. We ask that you abide by the guidelines listed below to ensure a smooth training event for you and your children.

  • Submit a child care profile (below) for each child in ABWE’s care.
  • Label everything that belongs to your child.
  • Bring your own bottles or cups, diapers, and a change of clothing for each child.
  • We will strive to keep your child as safe as possible, but in the event of any incident or accident, you will be notified in a timely manner.
  • Only parents will be permitted in the nursery to drop off and pick up children. No other siblings or adults will be allowed to retrieve children at the end of the training day.
  • Children are welcome to participate in the meal provided to the parents, but absolutely NO special meals will be provided for children based upon preference or allergy requirements. Parents are welcome to bring sack lunches for their children and refrigeration is available.
  • Do not bring:

    • Medication. Any medication that needs to be dispensed must be done so by you, the parent. Refrigeration is available if needed for the purpose of medication.
    • Sick children. No sick children will be admitted to the nursery for the health of other children. In the event that an illness presents itself in your child, you will be contacted by the nursery staff and if the child is indeed ill, the child will need to be cared for in a different method.
