  • The Nursery’s doctor regularly visits the children.
  • A nurse is present at the nursery on a permanent basis. Throughout the day, she periodically checks the children’s temperature and follows-up on their health and appetite because of our commitment to prevent any sick children from being in the Nursery in order to maintain a healthy environment for all.
