Free Child Care During Your Appointment
Worrying about child care should never prevent you and your family from getting the health care you need. At the Farmington Health Center, we’ll take care of your kids during your appointment!
Our caregivers are trained in CPR, first-aid, and best practices for early childhood development. Our quality care includes activities, crafts, and other learning activities. Our goal is to help make your visit as easy as possible.
Note: For patients of Farmington Health Center only.
The care center operates from 7am to 7pm (last check-in at 6:30pm) on a first-come, first-serve basis, and it’s completely FREE. We will text you if you need to come back to the child care area before your appointment is finished.
