Wellness Policy

Please advise the daycare prior to 8:00 am, if a child will not be attending daycare due to illness.

Parents agree that a child who is ill (eg. fever, infection, diarrhea, communicable disease, or any other type of illness that may be passed on to others) will be kept at home to protect the well-being of other children in our daycare.

In order to prevent illness in daycare, the following procedures need to be followed:

  • A child will not be allowed in daycare with temperature of 100.5 degrees or more;
  • A child will not be allowed in daycare who has had vomiting or diarrhea the night before;
  • If strap throat is diagnosed, the child will be sent home and will not be allowed to return to daycare the following day or has been on medication for at least 24 hours. Daddy’s Daycare must be notified when strep throat exists so that we can notify all parents of the illness.

           The parents further agree should a child become ill while in the day care that immediate arrangements will be made to remove the child from the daycare. Children will not be allowed to return to daycare until they have been symptom-free for at least 24 hours. In some cases, a note from a doctor may be necessary.

Caregivers must be informed, if your child was diagnosed with Chicken Pox, Coxsackie’s , ear infection, flu, conjunctivitis (pinkeye), Swine Flu, etc. and a note from a doctor must besubmitted in order to return to a daycare.

Daddy’s Daycare has the right to decide when a child is ill and will not be allowed in the daycare or when an ill child must be discharged from the daycare in order to prevent a spread of infection or illness to other children.

Please respect our illness policy.  If a child is not well enough to go outside to play or attend school, they are not well enough to attend daycare. Our objective is to provide a safe and healthy environment for each child under our care.

Daddy’s Daycare will not be administering medication to children suffering from allergies, asthma, etc. If a child requires medication, Daddy’s daycare will make arrangements with the parents to come to the daycare to provide the child with the medication.

Daddy’s Daycare will only care for well children.
