No child will be permitted to stay at preschool with a fever, diarrhea, unexplained rash, running nose of "green or yellow" (this usually means an infection), infectious diseases, any viral symptoms, or is vomiting, will not be allowed to stay in preschool. If your child is sick during the night he/she should not attend school until they have recovered. Children may return after they have been symptom free for 24 hours. This will ensure the well-being of everyone. The teacher reserves the right to call the parent if the child is too sick to stay at school.
We are not authorized to administer any medication during the school hours.
Here we believe that constant loving discipline is essential for a good program. Children who will not comply with teacher on behavior issues will be sent home. Parents will be informed when unusual circumstances arise that need immediate attention. "Busy Little Beavers" reserves the right to dismiss any child from the preschool program at any time for constant disobedience and misconduct.
