Regular sickness is becoming a concern!

My girlfriend's two youngest, the youngest just turned 1year April 30th and the other child is 3. They attend daycare 3-4 days a week. The daycare has a five star review on Facebook, I don't personally know anything about the center or it's employee's. I realize kids are magnets for germs, and spread germs and sicknesses but these two girls are literally sick at least once a month, sometimes twice. We're really starting to get concerned. I was wondering what actions we should take to check the cleanliness of the center, how they clean, how often, cleaners used, etc. This center is in Kentucky by the way. Im Not out to smear the centers name or anything, just a concerned parent, plus all of these doctors doctors visits and medication are hurting our pockets. Any advice is welcome, and thank you!

My daughter is 8 years old she was diagnosed with ADHD. She will be attending a daycare center every other Saturday and Sunday only. Only 4 times a month. The daycare center is asking for her IEP. Do I have to provide it? The provider won't accept her if I don't submit the IEP. I offered the treatment plan but the director wouldn't accept it.

Struggling with making friends

My five year old granddaughter is struggling with the constant upheaval of Military life. My son-in-law is a career military man and my granddaughter is beginning to shut down emotionally when it comes to making friends. She says she doesn’t want to make new friends because she always has to say goodbye. I was wondering if there are any books and/or I could buy for her that address this? Thank you

Age appropriate

when would it be age appropriate for a child to draw what is being discussed.
If we are talking about water and sand, when would it be appropriate to ask them to draw a picture of a beach/water and sand and expect them to. Of three children aged 4/5 in my group today, 1 drew a picture of water and one drew a rainbow and one drew grass with smiley faces.
