Special Needs Daycare Center Opens

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--There's a new place to go if you need a daycare facility for a child with special medical needs. Rapides Pediatric Day Health Care is now open in Alexandria. 

The facility is staffed with registered nurses and certified nursing assistants.  They are trained to care for children who need oxygen, take special medications or have other medical conditions. 

"This fills that gap for those parents that need somewhere for their children but a regular daycare can't accept them because they have a medical condition," Administrator Renee Wells said.

The specialized daycare also provides physical, speech and occupational therapy and can accept up to 40 kids.
