Does Your Child’s New York City Daycare Pass Health Tests?

Anyone who has or teaches kids knows one thing—they are pint-sized germ factories. Especially in the prime sickness seasons of fall and winter, there might be something more contagious in children than just adorable smiles and dimples. As kids still have immature immune systems, they’re more susceptible to pick up any virus or bacteria in the environment around them. This risk puts a premium on a safe, healthy daycare or school environment.

Earlier this fall, New York City Education Department officials shut down seven pre-Kindergarten sites due to health violations. Urbanites know it’s important to only patronize dining establishments with no health code violations, and should use the same standard when it comes to schools and daycares. Know what to look for in your child’s New York City daycare program, and know where to take them for medical care if they show signs of an unknown illness.
