Response to COVID-19

“As our global community grapples with the pandemic and the changed it has forced, we at PDN Children’s are committed to providing a level of care for our clients that is exceptional and is tailor for the “new normal” that we are currently facing.

We have taken extraordinary measures to ensure the safety of our clients, their families, and our staff to maintain the care that we are historically known for providing. Where possible, WE have converted our therapy sessions and classes to an online medium. If it is safe to do so, we are conducting therapies with all recommended safety guidelines.

Our IELC has been in operation to provide parents with the level of assurance that they can maintain their career and be confident that their children are in great hands.

The pandemic has forced us to reexamine traditions that we have had for quite some time. We canceled the Christmas Street gala, which has been held each year since 1974. This pandemic has forced us to think outside the box in regards to funding. We are continuing the Christmas Street tradition by offering designer-inspired Christmas trees available for your home or office. If you are interested in reserving a tree, please go to to view the available trees.

We are here for you. We intend to be far into the future to assist the families of this community. We are proud of our history that goes back to 1948. We have the best clients, families, and staff. We will prevail over this pandemic and will be stronger for it.”
