MY CHILD TAKES MEDICATION. WHAT IS YOUR POLICY IN GIVING MEDICATION TO MY CHILD?
We have strict policies for administering medication to your child to ensure they are protected. At the Novato Youth Center, for healthy practices for all children we require a doctor’s note for any medication, prescription or over the counter to ensure safety. Medications are stored securely out of the reach of children.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE EMERGENCY SITUATIONS?
We are serious about training for earthquakes, fires and lockdown situations. We have an emergency evacuation plan at the Novato Youth Center. We don’t just have a plan; we regularly test and train so our people are ready. Feel free to ask us about our emergency preparedness and the steps we take to ensure your child is safe.
