For Families

Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center

We understand how difficult the ups and downs of your child’s diagnoses can be and our team is always available and working nonstop to provide the best possible solutions, offer comfort and support for families and be there to lend a hand whenever needed. Family members play an integral role at Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center. As our partners in care, we encourage families to be active participants in their child’s medical journey and visit as often as possible.



Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center’s visitation guidelines were developed with the consideration of each resident’s physical, mental and psychological wellbeing and quality of life, while recognizing the necessity to protect and reduce the risk of transmission of the COVID-19.

Please note that the New York State Department of Health (DOH) requires visitors to have received a negative test result one day prior to visitation for antigen (rapid) tests and two days prior to visitation for PCR tests. All visitors may bring test results of either a PCR testing or antigen (rapid) testing upon arrival. If you do not have a negative result prior to your visit, you will test on the first floor of Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center. For visitors who visit multiple days, including a visitor who comes every day, proof of negative testing is required as often as feasible, at a minimum every third day.

Please see below for complete visitor guidance and expectations:

Elizabeth Seton Children’s School

Elizabeth Seton Children’s School deeply respects and honors the parent-child relationship; in fact, we believe that this is the very heart of a child’s early school experience. We recognize that families are their children’s first teachers, which is why actively engaging families from their initial visit to graduation day drives our daily practices.

Better Together

Better Together

Families, as equal partners, contribute to their child’s goal-setting, participate in school-wide and classroom activities and attend regular conferences and Open Center Night. We engage our families with child-specific communication notebooks, newsletters, emails, mailings, frequent phone contact and many opportunities to visit. Administrators, teachers, therapists and social workers are also available for meetings, as requested. This frequent communication promotes a powerful, two-way learning community that celebrates and enhances the home/school connection.

Support Services

We want our parents to feel empowered to care for their children at home where they grow and mature in the family environment knowing that the Rehabilitation Center will be a consistent source of support and assistance in the many years ahead.

At the Rehabilitation Center, we do not see a child with a limitation; we see a child with possibilities. Supportive services for families include: assistance with transportation needs and referrals to our educational programs, as well as other community-based services.
