Please go over this section very carefully. Because children get sick without warning, parents are well advised to have a back-up child care plan in place.

For everyone’s well-being, ill children cannot be admitted to the Centre. We have the right to refuse to take a sick child into care and to determine when a child is too ill to remain in care. Prompt treatment of any illness will facilitate the child’s early return to health and to the Centre, and will minimize the possibility of cross infection for the other children.
In order to ensure the overall health and safety of all the children, we ask that you not bring your child to the Centre if he/she has:
a.       An elevated temperature of over 101 F/40C or greater
b.       Vomited within 24-hour period
c.       Diarrhea (3 consecutive loose bowels) within 24 hours
d.       Eyes/ears that have any kind of discharge
e.       Visible rashes that have not been diagnosed by a physician
f.        A severe cough, runny nose and/or congestion
g.       Any communicable disease including: Impetigo, Coxsackie Virus, Fifth Disease, German Measles, Hepatitis A or B, Meningitis, measles, mumps, Pertussis (Whooping cough), ringworm, Scabies, Scarlet fever, strep throat, Tuberculosis. The child will be allowed back at the Centre following a doctor's examination and provision of a note indicating that the child is free of any disease.
h.       Bronchitis or pneumonia
Should your child develop a temperature of 101oF or higher during the day, the staff will contact you immediately. Your child must be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to the Centre.
