(Q) What is the day care policy when my child is sick?

(A) ILLNESS PROTOCOL MEMO

During the school year, your child may become ill. This memo is to help you along should such a circumstance occur. The information provided applies to all children admitted into our program and it is to ensure the protection of Your child.

Mild Illnesses
If your child is slightly ill, he/she will be allowed to attend school. However, if symptoms worseness while the child is at school you will be contacted immediately and asked that you pick up your child as soon as possible. Again, this is for the protection of all children in our program.

Moderately Ill
If your child is having a fever, diarrhea, vomiting, or any other symptoms listed below, we ask that you MUST keep your child at home either until he/she is cleared by a doctor (with a note for our files) and/or symptoms resolve. Once again, this is not to punish any child; on the contrary it is for the safety and full recovery of that child and the health of other children.

Should this occur, please make care arrangements for your child ahead of time so as to not inconvenience yourself and your child. Please inform your child’s teacher as well so that she can carefully plan for any missed work that your child may be able to attend to at home.

Other symptoms:

  • Any unusual skin rashes
  • Lice / Nits
  • Conjunctivitis / Pinkeye
  • Severe Complaints of Headache
  • Severe Coughing, Breathing, Sore Throat, and/or Swallowing
