What if we let kids get bored? From PBS Kids
This varies by location. Most Get Well Places are open 7:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. from Monday through Friday. However, others have alternative schedules. Please call your local Get Well Place to learn their hours.
Daily admissions are on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to students enrolled at LeafSpring School. Reservations may be made in advance by calling the Get Well Place at your local school. If you call after hours, please leave a message and our nurse will speak with you in the morning. Please do not show up without first speaking to an administrator or nurse to confirm enrollment in the program.
All children from birth to 13 years are eligible for enrollment. At most locations, children do not need to be enrolled at LeafSpring School use the Get Well Place. Please contact your local school to check on their services and availability.
An immunization record signed by your child’s pediatrician is required for admission, in addition to the following completed registration forms and registration a fee.
Children are isolated in a separate area of LeafSpring School that is broken out by symptom. So a child who has a cough will not be in the same room as a child with gastrointestinal issues.
Depending on the child’s medical and nursing needs, chronically ill children may be admitted to the Get Well Place, or may be supervised by a nurse from the Get Well Place while participating in the regular activities at LeafSpring School.
A nurse is on duty at all times. We engage additional staff as needed to achieve low staff/child ratios allowing us to provide your child with the excellent care he deserves:
Registration fees are to be paid to the Get Well Place you choose to send your child.
Full and part day rates (5 hours or less) are available for mildly ill backup care
Care for children who require additional skilled nursing services are charged on an individual basis based on the extent of care required. The actual cost will be determined before admission. These charges are in addition to the standard tuition and fees for LeafSpring School or the Get Well Place.
Additional services, such as occupational, physical, and speech therapy, are available on a contract basis with your child’s physician’s order. Please contact your Director or Get Well Place nurse to learn more.
Our Medical Advisory Board has developed standing orders for fever management and dietary management of vomiting/diarrhea. Each family is encouraged to file additional standing parent orders, if desired. We welcome the opportunity to discuss these orders with you, so you can discuss with your doctor.
