Health & Safety
Our guidelines are designed to protect both well and ill children and center employees. The policies reflect the regulations of the State of California Licensing Division, state and local health department, and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and the Professional Association of Childhood Education.
State law requires that every child must be inspected by a teacher on a daily basis for obvious symptoms of an illness. Children who are symptomatic will not be accepted. The signature of the parent on the sign-in sheet demonstrates acceptance by the designated adult. No parent should sign the attendance sheet for a child who has not been inspected by the teacher and accepted for the day.

Frequent hand washing is the single best way of preventing disease and illness. Please join us (if you’re not already!) in helping your child to develop the habit of frequently washing her/his hands.
If your child requires any medications, the parent will need to make arrangements with a physician for special instructions and prescriptions for use at the center. No medication, including over-the-counter medications, will be given without a doctor’s signed permission slip.
Each month we do a fire or earthquake drill according to regulations. In addition, the school is continuing preparations for a large school emergency.
In accordance with County Health Department regulations children must have the required immunizations for their age prior to entry. Immunizations must be kept up-to-date to remain enrolled in the center.
Children may be exempt from the immunization requirements for childcare center entry because all or some immunizations are contrary to personal beliefs. In this case, a parent must understand that if an outbreak of any of these diseases occurs at the center, the child may be temporarily excluded from school for her/his protection.
