The staff will exclude sick children as necessary to minimize the spread of illness and
infection, to protect other children and staff, and to be able to safely care for all children
in the program.
Children should not attend the program and will be excluded for the following reasons:
The Parent will be contacted as soon as possible.
When determined necessary, the child will be separated from the other children in a
quiet area until they are picked up.
The staff will complete the daily health check and illness report. The manager and the
parent/guardian will review and sign. A copy will be placed in the child’s record, and a
copy will be provided to the health consultant to review.
Staff will distribute family alerts as necessary specific to the illness/infection.
This policy applies to all staff, children, volunteers and families.
