It is Tick Tock’s policy not to accept children who are ill. We will take every precaution to safeguard your child against illness. In turn, we request your cooperation in keeping all our children healthy by not bringing your child to Tick Tock if they display any sign of a cold, sore throat, rash, cough, diarrhea or pink eye. If the child has had a fever or vomited in the past 24 hours they may not come to the center. A child must be kept home for 24 hours after beginning medication for strep throat or conjunctivitis (pink eye). A child must remain at home at least 7 days after the outbreak of chicken pox AND until the eruptions are dry.
As a general rule, if your child’s health is questionable, please consider the health of the other children and the staff members and keep your child at home.
If a child becomes sick during the course of their stay, the child will be separated from the others and you will be contacted to pick up your child. Parents will be expected to pick up their sick child in a prompt and expeditious manner.
If your child has been at our center and develops a contagious illness such as strep throat, chicken pox, conjunctivitis, etc., please inform us as soon as possible. If any child or staff member develops a contagious illness, it will be posted at our front desk.
Our staff has first aid training and will administer to minor cuts and bruises when applicable. In the event of a medical emergency we will contact appropriate medical emergency personnel and immediately notify the parent. If emergency personnel deem it necessary, your child will be transported to an appropriate medical facility.
