Immunizations are required to be up to date based on the age of the child. Medical waivers are available from your child's physician. Religious/Personal waivers are available from the Department of Health; the form needs to be completed and signed by a parent.
When a child does not live with both biological parents and both parents are not available for signature, you may be asked to provide a parent custody statement. Note that a childcare center / preschool cannot refuse to release a child to the child’s parent or legal guardian who has or shares legal custody of the child. In most cases, both parents have equal custody rights unless a court or valid written separation agreement proves otherwise.
