It is the policy of the center to temporarily exclude children from care who may be infectious or who demonstrate physical symptoms that require continual one-to-one care.
Guidelines for excluding sick children
- Fever over 101 degrees
- Recurring vomiting
- Diarrhea (more than three times)
- Eye discharge (conjunctivitis is extremely contagious)
- Excessive cough and/or nasal discharge (green or yellow in color)
- Any unidentified rash
When a child may return to the center
- The child’s temperature has been below 101 degrees for 24 hours without Tylenol or aspirin.
- The child has been diagnosed as having a bacterial infection and has been on an antibiotic for 24 hours.
- It has been 24 hours since the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea without medication.
- The nasal discharge is not thick, yellow, or green.
- Eyes are no longer discharging, or the condition has been treated with an antibiotic for 24 hours.
- The rash has subsided or the physician has determined that the rash is not contagious.
Occasionally, a written note from the child’s physician will be required by the center for a child to be re-admitted. Please call the center and let us know if your child will not be in attendance on a scheduled day. If your child becomes ill while at the center, you will be called to take your child home. We would like you to pick your child up within one hour of the phone call. We strongly suggest that you have an alternate plan of action for child care to cover these situations.
