Child care will not admit a child if he/she has any of the following: diarrhea, fever 100 or higher with symptoms of other illness, known contagious disease, questionable rash, vomiting, conjunctivitis or a severe cough/cold.
If a child is on antibiotics, he/she should have been treated at least 24 hours before admittance to child care.
If a child becomes ill and the illness prevents the child from participating comfortably in activities as determined by the child care provider or the illness results in a greater need for care than child care can provide without compromising the health and safety of the other children as determined by the child care provider, parents will be notified and the child will need to be removed from child care.
Upon notification of a sick child, the parent(s) will come immediately to pick up his/her child. In case of a serious emergency, appropriate emergency personnel will be contacted as well.
Re-admittance into child care following an illness while at Annual Conference will be at the sole discretion of the head of child care and must adhere to numbers 1 and 2 of the stated policy. A doctor's note granting permission to return to child care is highly encouraged.
