Parent Information

HEALTH CARE/ILLNESS POLICY

Northside Hospital Child Development Centers follows accepted practices to protect the health and safety of the children, staff and all visitors.  For children with special health care needs, food allergies or nutrition needs, parents will be requested to provide an “Individualized Care Plan” that is prepared in consultation with family members and specialist involved in the child’s care.
    
Sick children are to remain away from the center. The center staff should be notified if a child contracts a contagious disease.  Other parents are notified of their child’s exposure in order to look for symptoms.  

Certain illnesses necessitate the temporary removal of a child from the Center.  Children are checked daily for health status.  If signs of illness are noticed during an informal check, staff will conduct a more formal evaluation.  When a teacher observes symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, or suspicious rashes, parents are notified.  If the staff determines the following conditions exist, parents are contacted to pick up their child immediately.  The director reserves the right to ask for a written release from the child’s physician or health department in order for the child to return to the center.

The chart below includes information regarding common childhood illnesses and when children may return to school.
