My 2 year old daughter has just been diagnosed with having type 1 diabetes. Is there a daycare center in Hampton roads VA (primarily Virginia Beach/ Norfolk area) that specialize or know how to take care of children with this disease?

    I am the local Program Director for the American Diabetes Association. Unfortunately, we have not had much success with finding schools in Va. Bch./Nfk area as we have in Chesapeake.

    Check out Greenbrier Enrichment School, they take two year olds and are very sensitive to children with diabetes. There are a number of trained and certified caregivers at this school.

    A few years, they had ONE child diagnosed with diabetes and their school welcomed her and her family with open arms. They are now our Cinderella story, they are ADA advocates and fundraisers for diabetes, you will love them. Feel free to call or email me at 888-DIABETES ext. 3277 or jthompson@diabetes.org.

    Hope this helps!
