If your child/children require emergency medical care I will make a conscientious effort to locate the parents/guardians listed on the emergency form before any actions will be taken. If I am unable to contact any of the parents/guardians/friends/relatives listed on your form it will be necessary for me to obtain emergency medical care at your expense. (Emergency Information/Medical Release)
An emergency phone list is posted near my telephone for easy access.

If a child becomes ill while in my care, I will notify the parents/guardians and we will discuss how to care for the child. If the child can no longer be at the facility, the parents/guardians will be asked to pick up the child immediately. (Ill Child)
Children who are running a temperature, vomiting or have diarrhea, are infectious or have a communicable condition must be removed from the facility and cannot return until the condition may no longer be transmitted. MUST be fever free for 24 hours. (Infectious or Communicable Conditions)
Medications will be stored in an area inaccessible to children. A written record of the administration of medication, including over-the-counter medication must be kept for each child. Those records must include the date, time of each administration, the dosage, the name of the person administering the medication and the name of the child. A form granting permission from the parents/guardians to administer that medication must be on hand. Parents/guardians must also sign a consent form for non-prescription medications and remedies. It is extremely important that you include information on any allergies your child may have. I will inform parents/guardians of any medication information daily.
