Sick or Injured Child
When a child becomes ill during the course of the day, staff are required to contact the parent to pick up their child as soon as possible. All attempts will be made to remove the child from the program either with a staff member, Director or Supervisor to the office or parent lounge. Please note that the Centre does not have a ‘sick room' for children, we do our best to accommodate any sick children while keeping in mind the health and safety of the rest of the children.
For minor medical accidents i.e., scrapes, cuts, and bumps, staff will provide the appropriate first aid, TLC and an accident form will be filled out. The parents will not be called unless the staff feels the injury requires non-emergency medical attention. If a child does require immediate medical attention due to injury or illness, the staff will call 911 and the child will be transported to the hospital accompanied by a staff member. The parents will be notified by staff or management regarding the situation.
In the event that a child needs to stay home due to illness, please contact the CCCCG:
- Email or phone Kathy Klaver at the main office - 519-822-1280
- Email or phone Dori Cross at her office - 519-826-6927
Please refer to the "Medical Policy” for information on specific illnesses and exclusionary guidelines. You can also refer to the "Detailed Descriptions and Policies for Selected Medical Conditions" table as a reference as well.
If a child has a life–threatening allergy or illness, parents need to advise management, fill out the necessary forms and provide any medication needed. View our Medication Policy and Anaphylaxis Policy for further information.
