Health Policy

 

We ask that you show teachers and other parents the same concern and Christian courtesy that you want shown to you by not bringing a child who is ill into a preschool room. The recommendations below are form the American Academy of Pediatrics.

A child should not be taken from the home when any of the following exist:

  • Fever (should be fever-free for at least 24 hours)
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Any symptom of usual childhood diseases — scarlet fever, measles, mumps, chicken pox, whooping cough
  • Common cold — from onset through one week
  • Sore throat
  • Croup
  • Any unexplained rash
  • Any skin infection — boils, ringworm, impetigo
  • Pink eye or other eye infections

In addition:
We will not administer any medications. Food activities are regular events in preschool classrooms. Therefore, information regarding your child’s allergies is very important.
