We will notify you immediately if your child has any of the following conditions:
- an underarm temperature of 100 degrees or higher
- an oral or ear temperature of 101 or higher
- rectal temperature of 102 or higher
- conjunctivitis or ‘pink eye’
- consistently complains of a stomach or ear ache
- head lice
- has a rash other than a heat-related rash
- any other communicable disease
In general, if your child is too sick to go out and play, he or she is too sick to be in daycare. We will expect you to make arrangements to come and take your child home within 1 hour of such an occurrence.
Your child may attend daycare if he or she has a common cold, however; if your child reaches a point when he or she requires constant attention, will not play, cries continuously, whines and wants to be held constantly, then your child will need to be home.
Please dispense all medications at home whenever possible. When this is not possible, we require written permission and instructions to administer medications, sunscreens, diapering products, and insect repellents.
Please ask for the medication administration permission form should you need it. You can also download it below(save the image then print it) and bring it filled out to save yourself time at drop off. Prescription medication must have the child’s name and directions printed on the label, and must be in the original container with the doctor and pharmacy information printed on it.
We are required to have your child’s current immunizations on file. This form must be filled out by you and be up-to-date. Need the form? Download it here: Immunization Form Don’t forget the signatures on the second page 🙂
