For the safety and security of your child(ren), ASHG has the right to refuse care to any child based on space availability as well as to any child unable to adapt to group situations, or to any child whose presence or behavior may disrupt the program or endanger the health or safety of other children.

Additionally, staff will not administer medication (including sunscreen), and any child who is ill will not be admitted to the center.
