Nursing Nook: In our Infant Suite we have a spa~inspired room for our moms who would like to breast feed on their lunch hour or before they leave the school for work. The Nursing Nook is equipped with comfortable seating, nursing pillows, hand washing sink, a refrigerator for milk storage and a television. At Providence, we want to support our Charlotte moms in breastfeeding for as long as possible, therefore we have created a serene space to make nursing a pleasant experience outside of the home.
Healing Haven: Although the Providence Preparatory School policy states that children should be picked up within an hour of becoming ill, we want children to be as comfortable as possible while waiting for mom or dad to pick them up. The Healing Haven is a child friendly space where children can rest peacefully while they watch an educational program or listen to soothing music. A child that is not feeling well will be cared for by a trained staff member.
We will utilize the expertise of the Communicable Disease Control/Mecklenburg County Health Department, for health issues that occur at our school.
