Parents Information: HEALTH & SAFETY

We know it isn’t practical or realistic to expect parents to keep children home every time they have a runny nose.  But with some symptoms a child may endanger his or her own health and the health of the other children and staff by being at the center when he or she is sick.  Please keep your child at home if he has a fever or develops symptoms of disease that may endanger the health of the other children.  Your child will be sent home if he appears to have symptoms of illness during the day.  Your child cannot return to Little Miss Mag until he has been fever free without medication for 24 hours.

Please keep your child at home if he is diagnosed as having any contagious disease.

A child must be immunized in accordance with state laws.  Children under 30 months are required to have a physical examination.

The center is authorized to administer only current prescription medications with the child’s name on it.  No over-the-counter medications will be dispensed.  A medical form also must be filled out and a calibrated medicine dispenser must accompany each container of medicine. Medicine is kept in a locked box in the office or in the refrigerator.

Tobacco and Drug Policy: In order to ensure a healthy environment for all children, the following tobacco and drug policy is in affect: The Little Miss Mag facility shall be tobacco and drug free at all times.
