Preschools and providers of child care in Marietta GA will only administer "Over the Counter" medication with a doctor's note. Medications must be given directly to the preschool or daycare personnel, and do not leave medication in your child's lunch box or classroom. You should also check with your Marietta child care provider to determine the hours during which they will be able to administer medications. For example some providers of daycare and child care in Marietta GA do not administer during the hours when children are taking naps. Quality providers of child care in Marietta GA will have written emergency procedures that are practiced periodically (usually monthly).
