Little Lights administrator: Small class size reduces flu exposure


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - One local child care facility in La Crosse is confident its small size will prevent a flu outbreak.

The administrator of Little Lights Child Care, at Three Rivers Waldorf School, is programmed to function like a family.

The child care has a class of only 12, and kids range in age from three months to three years.

They all play outside together, eat lunch together, and they even take a two hour nap together.

"We're always spreading germs. Everybody, even the healthiest among us. You know, the washing hands, the blowing noses, all the preventative measures people take, we take here, too," said Justin McKnight, Three Rivers Waldorf School administrator.

McKnight said since the child care has such a small number of kids will help reduce exposure to the virus.
