Children do best in familiar surroundings under the guidance of their own parents and no one is more important to a child than their parent, but there are times when having alternative care is a better option for both parents and children. When parents have no one to turn to for child care during stress, emergencies or self-help appointments, they can bring their children to the Crisis Nursery. We are committed to providing a safe, healthy, nurturing atmosphere for all children in our care. We know that parenting can be challenging - if parents experience ongoing stress or repeated family emergencies we will encourage them to connect with resources to help them stabilize their home environment over the long term.
We do not provide services for ongoing child care needs such as work or school but in such situations we may be able to refer to child care providers.
The Crisis Nursery is licensed to take children aged one month through 11 years and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
