Notification of illness: If your child is ill, please notify Tiny Tot by 9:00 A.M. that he/she will not be attending school that day.
Medication: Medication may be given to a child when authorized by the child’s physician All medication must remain in the original container indicating the child’s name, type of medication, date of prescribed medication, amounts and times of dosage and a physician’s name. If your child should require medication, the doctor can often prescribe the dosage twice a day, so that the medication can be given at home. We will not administer over the counter medication without a doctor’s note.
Parents must sign the medical consent form stating that Tiny Tot is authorized to administer the prescription. No medication will be given to a child unless it is brought from home by the parent or guardian.

Children must remain home, diarrhea and fever free, for 24 hours after illness without the use of Tylenol or other fever reducing drugs.
There will be no exceptions made regarding illness and children going outside to play. The safety of the group outside cannot be put in jeopardy by allowing one staff member to stay inside with one child. If a child is well enough to be in school, he/she is well enough to be outside.
In the event of an emergency, paramedics will be called first and then parents will be called immediately.
You will be notified of accidents and significant incidents that may occur during the day via a written accident report in your child’s folder.
