Lafayette will have a new daycare but it’s not just any daycare. PediaTrust is a daycare designed to care for medically fragile children. The Lafayette location is their fifth location with others in Denham Springs, Lake Charles, Hattiesburg MS, and Columbus MS. According to Developing Lafayette, it is opening soon in the former Coccolare Spa building at 311 Doucet Road in Lafayette.

PediaTrust offers an incredible service that is much needed. It's a daycare that provides skilled services to medically fragile children from birth all the way up to age 21. Each child will be given nursing care along with opportunities to socialize with others. This will offer so many children in Acadiana an experience to grow and learn in a very unique way.

PediaTrust will offer way more than just a daycare service. They offer their clients many different services including things like physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social services, and so much more. They will even customize a special education curriculum for each client.

The great thing about this facility is that you don’t have to worry about your loved one. You don’t have to question their care. The medical staff includes Registered Nurses, a Medical Director, and Therapists. This medical staff collaborates with the parents and the patient’s pediatricians.

According to the PediaTrust website, seven pediatric practices united to form the company in 2012. They firmly believe that medical care must meet each child’s and family’s unique needs, because every situation is different. They have been recognized as certified Patient-Centered Medical Homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. They provide innovative, cutting-edge care with a team that is constantly searching for new ways to ensure patients receive the best possible care.
The facility is gorgeous and provides so many services. You’ll find several rooms for social play, an on-site medication room, and an outdoor play area. I love that they localized the Lafayette location by having Hannah Gumbo, a local artist, paint a mural in the main lobby.
