POLICIES - SICK CHILD

Our Child Illness Policy is based on the Model Health Care Policies developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

 

Loving Arms understands that it is difficult for a parent/ guardian to leave or miss work; therefore, it is suggested that  alternative arrangements be made for occasions when children must remain at home or be picked up due to illness.

 

Exclusion from the center is sometimes necessary to reduce the transmission of illness or because the center is not able to adequately meet the needs of the child.

 

Mild illnesses are common among children and infections are often spread   before the onset of any symptoms.

 

In these cases, we try to keep the children comfortable throughout the day, but will find it  necessary to exclude them from the child care setting for the following reasons (this list covers most common illnesses, but is not inclusive of all reasons for exclusion).

 

Child’s Exclusion Due to Illness:  Illness that prevents the child from participating comfortably in program activities.

 

Illness that results in a greater need for care than our staff can provide without compromising the health and safety of  other children.

 

Illness that poses a risk of spread of harmful disease to others.
