D'Andrea's Friends ~N~ Play
HomeDaily ActivitiesD'Andrea's CalendarCurriculum
Due to different religious and cultural practices, gifts will only be exchanged if all of the families I serve would like to participate.  Typically, the children enjoy exchanging small, inexpensive gifts during the December holiday period and I enjoy giving each child a small present before the holiday break.

I discourage a general exchange among the children at birthdays since there could be as many as 12 birthdays each year - or more if there are part-time children in care!  In addition, children often have birthday parties at their home, so the exchange of presents during daycare is not really necessary.  If parents would like to provide a special treat for the group on their child's birthday, that would be more appropriate.

Although I am not a trained medical professional, I have been educated in the recognition of infectious childhood diseases and I will attempt to alert you at the first sign of any illness.

In order to protect the health of all children in my care, I will call you at work and request that you pick up your child within one hour if he or she exhibits any of the following symptoms:

    ~ fever over 100 degrees Fahrenheit for more than 1 hour
    ~ excessive diarrhea for 2 consecutive diapers or toiletings
    ~ vomiting in excess of typical infant spit-ups
    ~ conjunctivitis ("pink eye") or discharge from eyes or ear
    ~ persistent complaints of ear or stomach pain
    ~ bleeding other than minor cuts and scrapes
    ~ excessive greenish nasal discharge, indicating possible infection
    ~ head lice (child must be treated and be lice and nit free before
    ~ unusual rash
    ~ excessive coughing

In the event your child is sent home due to one of the above conditions,
he or she will not be allowed to return until they have been symptom-free for a full 24 hours, or until accompanied by a signed note from your child's doctor. 
In the event that I am closed for four or more days due to illness or family emergency, and I am unable to provide a substitute caregiver, the tuition for the week that I am closed will be waived.
Parent will be responsible for providing backup care during the time I am closed due to this illness or emergency.
