Sick Policy

  • Child Care Sick Policy

    Please do not bring your child to the Child Care if he or she is sick. A doctor’s note will be needed to show staff that your child has been cleared to be around the other children if a contagious type of sickness occurred. A Child Care Employee will call you to pick up your child if we believe that they are too ill to be in the Child Care. Your child can return to the Child Care when he/she is no longer contagious, usually 24 hours after the symptoms are completely gone and/or 24 to 48 hours after antibiotics have begun depending on the illness. Please remember that if they are not well enough to be in school, they are not well enough to be in Child Care.

    Your child cannot come to Child Care with a fever of 99.9º or higher. The child must be fever free for a minimum of 24 hours before returning. That means fever free without the aid of a fever reducing substance. Giving your child Tylenol (or anything in relation) to reduce the fever before arriving is unacceptable because the fever will reappear once again and the child will still have to be sent home.

    Below are just “examples” of contagious illnesses of when your child needs to stay out of Child Care. Each individual case is different and may require more or less time out, but will always require a doctor’s note stating that the child is totally well and not contagious in order to return. This is for the protection of your child, all other Child Care children present and the Child Care Employees.

    A doctor’s note will show that your child is cleared by a doctor, but you MUST abide by the Child Care Sick Policy first, regarding when a child can or cannot come to Child Care. This means that Child Care has the right to not accept your child even with a doctor’s note. It is our hope to keep the Child Care as germ-free and sick-free as possible. Once ONE child comes to the Child Care sick, he or she is exposing everyone to that illness. So let’s keep it healthy.

    If a child continually comes to the Child Care sick and the parents do not abide by the Child Care sick policy, then Child Care services will be terminated by the Child Care Manager.

    If you have any questions concerning this policy, and whether your child should attend, please call (201)567-9399 and ask for the Child Care Manager, Kledia, or email at ksovjani@gettothegym.com.

    Reasons why the child cannot come to Child Care:

    • Fever of 99.9 or higher/Scarlet fever (fever free for 24 hours)
    • Cold with thick green/yellow nasal discharge (see cold policy)

    • Unexplained Rash/Roseola (consult doctor/need note stating your child is not contagious)
    • Flu/Bronchitis/Pneumonia (consult doctor/need note stating it is ok to come back to childcare. Usually takes 5-7 days before they come back after having flu, takes 24 – 48 hours after bronchitis and pneumonia. Must be on antibiotics and no fever for at least 24 hours without taking fever reducing medication)
    • Ear Infection (consult doctor/need note. Child must be on antibiotics and no fever for 24 hours)

     

    Common Cold Policy:
    Children suffering from a common cold will be assessed on an individual basis. If we believe that your child is too sick or may be contagious to the other children, we will come call you to take your child(ren) out of Child Care.

    When caring for an ill child, the ability to provide high quality care to all of the other children is jeopardized.

    Factors of consideration include the developmental stage of your child in our correspondence to limit the spread of germs. The younger your child, the more difficult it is to keep the spread of germs down. For example, hand to face contact, mouthing of toys, uncontrolled nasal discharge, uncovered sneezing, and coughing, etc.

    A child may return when he/she is free from symptoms and no longer infectious. The child should be well enough to actively participate throughout the two hour limit. In any case of serious or unexplainable illness, a doctor’s medical clearance may be required prior to returning to Child Care.

    Please be courteous of all children in our Child Care, and refrain from bringing an ill child until 24 hours have passed since any fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or and other contagious symptoms have occurred.
