How Sick Is Too Sick?
Tuesday, June 28, 6:30-8 p.m.
One of the most commonly asked questions in child care is: “when is a child too sick to attend?” Join us for this informative training and discussion to learn when a child can safely attend group programs and when a child should be excluded due to illness. You will leave with ideas to prevent illness, and a strong understanding of when a child with an illness can return to the group. Bring your questions and stories to help us frame this very real problem in child care.
Audience: Early care and education assistant teachers, teachers, family child care providers and center directors.
