Illness at the Center

Illness at the Center
If your child becomes ill during the course of the day we will contact you, therefore please provide cell phone or other numbers to ensure that we can reach you. In that event you must pick up your child as soon as possible, we request within 90 minutes of notification. We cannot give a sick child the additional care he/she needs and still give optimal care to the rest of the group. The presence of a sick child puts all the other children at risk. Please be sure to update your emergency contact forms if your address or phone numbers change.
Children with a fever of 101 or more will be sent home. Parents will be contacted and expected to make arrangements for the child to be picked up immediately. This child must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to the center. Because of the danger of contagions, all instances of communicable disease must be reported immediately to the teacher, so that center parents can be notified.




We do everything in our power to keep your children safe when they are in our care. During the course of play it is normal for children at this age to get some bumps and bruises. In the event of an accident the teacher will fill out an Accident/Incident report. This report will be given to the parent to alert them of the incident and parents are asked to sign the form.
