The Tennessee Department of Human Services (DHS) also approves our meals. Three nutritious daily meals are offered to the children at The Children’s Center of Knoxville, Inc. (hot breakfast, hot lunch, and an afternoon snack). Children who eat all of these meals while attending school receive 2/3 of the daily nutrition recommended to them by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). These meals are included in the price of weekly tuition and offered at no additional charge to parents.
Parents of Children enrolled in the facility are continually kept informed of the status of their child’s health. Children’s Center staff notifies parents of children requiring medical attention or a physician’s evaluation. Children needing immediate medical attention are transported to the hospital of the parent’s choice, either by the parents or an ambulance. Emergency number 911 will be used if the Children’s Center staff determines that such action is necessary. The Children’s Center of Knoxville, Inc. is conveniently located near many of Knoxville’s major hospital facilities, including Children’s Hospital. Current emergency information is kept on file in the administrative office.
