Crisis Nursery

Where do you turn when you are experiencing a crisis and need care for your child? If you live in Wichita, call KCSL’s Crisis Nursery at 316-942-4261 x1312 or 1-800-CHILDREN. We’re here to help.

In Wichita, KCSL offers Crisis Nursery, short-term care services for children when parents are experiencing a crisis or extreme stress. Crisis Nursery can assist your family with emergency childcare when unexpected situations occur including parental or sibling illness or death; lack of utilities, food or shelter; domestic violence; the need for drug alcohol treatment; or other emergency situations which jeopardize the safety and well-being of the child.

Crisis Nursery services include meaningful involvement of parents in the planning and evaluation of our activities. Parents are involved in decision-making by receiving services on a voluntary basis. Working directly with the parent, a KCSL professional helps identify your family’s needs, determines the best resources and makes a plan to meet these goals.

Temporary care services for children are available Monday through Friday and include:
  • Nutritious food.
  • Nurturance, consistency and a stimulating daily routine.
  • Developmentally appropriate children’s programming.
  • Advocacy, resources, and referrals to help resolve emergencies or crisis.
Crisis Nursery also extends services to the parents:
  • Training
  • Support
  • Connection to community resources
  • Parent support groups
All services offered by Crisis Nursery are free and based on availability. There is no charge to the family. To initiate Crisis Nursery services in Wichita, please call KCSL at 316-942-4261 x1312 or 1-800-CHILDREN to see if you qualify.
