There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace.

I look forward to meeting you and your family
I have revised the illness policy just a bit. For the protection of all of the children in my care as well as the health of your own child and my family, this is a reminder of my sick policy. In order to protect the group as a whole, I ask that parents assist me by keeping sick children at home. This is the season that children start getting ill. It is very hard to prevent this from happening however, I will do my best and have the children learn best practices “covering their mouth, blowing their nose, washing their hands as well as cleaning toys regularly”.
In the event that a child becomes sick while here the family will be notified and prompt pick up within (45 minutes) arrangements will be made.
.....When child may not attend daycare .....
* Fever 99.9 degrees and higher
this includes the night before/morning of daycare ~ No fever for 24 hours without taking fever reducing medication.
* If you had to give your child medicine the night before then that still means they can not come to daycare the next morning.
* If I see that your child does not show signs of being ill and can eat, play and do daily activities but has a low grade fever, I will use my best judgement.
* If He/She is over 101.0 regardless of activity, they are ask to be picked up.
* If he/she shows illness, runny nose coughing watery eyes, sleepiness and he/she is over 100.0 I will call for pick up.
* Flu/Bronchitis/Pneumonia ~ Consult doctor/Need a note stating it is ok to come back to daycare. This usually takes about 2-3 days before they can come back to daycare. Must be on antibiotics and no fever for at least 24 hours without taking fever reducing medication.
* Ear Infection ~ Consult doctor/Need a note. Child must be on antibiotics and no fever for 24 hours before returning.
* Conjunctivitis (red eyes with yellow discharge)/Pink Eye ~ Consult doctor/Need a note. Child must be on eye drops/antibiotics for 24 hours.
* Head Lice ~ Usually takes 24 hours to treat head and house ~ When all nits have been removed and child is cleared from the doctor.
>>>>>>>>Common Cold Policy>>>>>>>>
Children suffering from a common cold will be assessed on an individual basis. Again, If he/she shows illness, runny nose coughing watery eyes, sleepiness and he/she is over 100.0, I will call for pick up. Factors of consideration include the developmental level of your child in congruence with my ability to limit the spread of germs.
A child may return when he or she is free from symptoms and no longer infectious. The child should also be well enough to actively participate throughout the day. In any case of serious or unexplainable illness, a doctor’s medical clearance may be required prior to admission back into care.
If you have any questions concerning this policy and whether your child should attend, please call me before bringing your child.
If your child needs any medicine to make them feel better they should be at home with mom, dad or person of your choosing. Thank you for your assistance with this. I will have a copy of this updated policy for you all to sign today at pick up.
I teach children about the world they live in, about themselves, and their peers. And I teach children about adults, trust, and love. I work with attitudes. I hope to inspire a love of learning. This is what I teach."
All children are born with emotional needs. These needs must be met by the adults in their life if they’re to grow into confident and independent adults. The acronym PARENTS summarises children’s needs (Protection, Acceptance, Recognition, Enforced limits, Nearness, Time and Support).
Support: The outside world is a scary place for children. It’s full of unknown dangers and unmet challenges. Thus, to launch out and discover they can cope and survive, children need to be certain that their parents’ will be there. That is, they need their encouragement, their affirmation, their constant support and their belief in the child. That helps the child to venture into and explore the outside world, so they develop independence and increased autonomy.text, images, and other content
