Blogs Don't Always Have To Be Business Related
I'm always reading many blogs from folks, seeral times a week. It's great that we're all 'business minded' entrepreneurs striving for the same goals. Helping each other along on our journey here in WA, is what makes this a great community.
I do my share within the community offering help when needed, which always makes me feel great I've recently started blogging more, and feel better bloggng away from the business side of things, but still about subjects helpful and entertaining. More on a personal level readers can relate to.
I know there are a lot of people here with children. (Even some with hearing disabilities.) As a concerned parent, you're always worried about your child's health and the environment that could bring on health issues.
One of the biggest concerns is what's going on in daycare regarding health issues. Some parents, instead of taking off work to care for their child's health, (They figure, "gotta make that money.") they still drop them off at school anyway. By doing this, you are making other children sick.
By keeping close watch on the health of your child will greatly improve the chances of other youngsters staying healthy.
Guidelines For Excluding From Day Care
Children who have the following symptoms should be excluded from the child care setting until 1) a physician has certified the synptoms are not associated with an infectious agent or the child is no longer a threat to the health of other children at the center, or 2) the synptoms hae subsided.
For the mildly ill, exclusion should be based on whether there are adequate facilities and staff available to meet the needs of both the ill child and other children in the group.
