Yellow House Playschool Health Policies

Please do not bring your child to school if they are displaying sickness or has a fever. Please respect the staffs' judgement when they determine that a child should not attend because of sickness. These limits are designed to help sick children recover and to avoid the spread of disease. Lethargy, diarrhea, fever and persistent cough may all be symptoms of illness and it is our policy to isolate children showing such symptoms. Parents or persons named on emergency contact form, need to pick up their child promptly if he/she is ill. 


We must exclude from care any child:


  • Who has reportable illness or condition that is contagious; (Parents must inform us within 24 hours if there child has a contagious disease.)


  • With Chicken Pox until the child is no longer infectious or until the lesions are crusted over;


  • Who has vomited two or more times within the past 24 hours; 


  • Who has has any abnormally loose stools in the past 24 hours;


  • Who has contagious conjunctivitis or pus draining from the eye (pink eye);


  • Who has had a bacterial infection and has not completed 24 hours of antibiotics;


  • Who has unexplained lethargy and is unable to participate in all regular activities of the day;


  • Who has a 100 degree Fahrenheit temperature or above before fever reducing medication is given;


  • Whose temperature has not been below 100 degress for 24 hours;


  • Who has an undiagnosed rash or a rash attribute to a contagious illness or condition;


  • Who requires more care than our staff can provide without compromising the health and safety of the other children in care;


If children are exposed or have have a contagious reportable disease, this will be reported to all parents by the director in the form of a sick note/email.
