Policy on Sick Children
Your childcare provider should have a policy on how sick is too sick for childcare. Your child's (and your provider's) risk is lowered if the childcare provider's policy resembles the CDC's recommendations. These are mostly commonsense guidelines. Workers should be properly immunized and screened for health problems. Each childcare facility should have written criteria for excluding and readmitting children who are or have been ill. You should obtain a copy of these criteria from your childcare provider.
