CHEO Hospital Program

CHEO Hospital Program

Teachers from M.F. McHugh Education Centre work with students from kindergarten to Grade 12 on both medical and mental health wards.  Children on the medical wards are admitted for a variety of severe illnesses.  On the mental health wards children are admitted as a result of significant emotional/psychiatric crisis.  In both cases the educational component assures the greatest possible chance of successful reintegration of the child into the community school upon discharge.  There is also a program for youth with eating disorders.
