Baby’s first time being sent home from daycare with a 100.6 fever, I called CI and they were able to fit us in within 20 mins, unfortunately we were an hour away. They advised me what to do and course of action if she became worse. After picking up our lil one and feeling the congestion in her back we decided to do a walk in and see if they could see us and yet again they made time for us. The facility had a make-over due to a herrible storm a few months ago and now looks very nice and clean. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Thank you to Childrens International for making time for our 5 month old!! Best Regards
