If your child becomes sick while at daycare, we will do our best to keep him or her comfortable until you can come to pick them up from daycare. If you will not be able to pick your child up within a half hour of receiving our call, it would be best to arrange for another family member or other authorized person to come for you.
Even if it is not necessary to pick your child up from daycare, we will contact you to let you know If your child is not feeling well, so that you have the opportunity to make the best decision regarding your child's care. If your child's symptoms fall within the exclusion criteria, usually a fever over 100, vomiting or diarrhea, we will contact you to come pick them up from daycare. Children must be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to care.
