Your Child's Health

Health and safety issues are extremely important at the Grammy Ann's. We want to provide a safe and healthy environment for all children and staff. Each child must have current physical examination (within 12 months) signed by a physician, and an up to date certificate of immunization prior to attending the preschool.

If your child has a known medical condition (such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, seizure disorder, etc.), please notify the Director. Please notify the director if there are any special instructions or procedures for the care of your child if a problem should arise.

We depend on the parent's assessment of their child's health before sending him/her to school. Germs are spread quickly in child care environments. Listed below are guidelines we use at the preschool:

As we greet each child at the door, we will check for general appearance;

Children who become ill at school will be separated from the group and cared for in a quiet area until they are picked up;

Parents will be notified immediately when a serious illness or injury occurs;

If necessary, an ambulance and the child's physician will be contacted;

All accidents of any kind will be reported verbally and in writing to families;

Parents are requested to contact the preschool if their child acquires a contagious condition so we can notify staff and other families;

If there is an occurrence of a communicable disease, a notice will be posted outside the main entrance door (south door) of the Preschool. The notice will include the communicable condition, the symptoms associated with the condition and the period of communicability.

Parents are asked to keep their child home if there has been a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea within 24 hours (this is a very contagious time for these conditions)

If a child has a fever of 100 or higher, the child will need to stay home until fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications. If the child develops a fever of 100 at preschool, the child will be separated from the group and cared for in a quiet area, and the parents/guardians contacted to pick up the child.

If a child has head lice, scabies, impetigo, ring worm, pink eye, etc., the child may not return to preschool until 24 hours after treatment has begun.
