What is your health care policy regarding sick children?
We ask parents to keep their child home if exhibiting any of the following symptoms:
If a child displays these or other mild symptoms of illness while in care the child is offered extra rest time in a quiet area away from the other children with adult supervision. A parent will be notified of the illness and a plan will be made for the child to either remain in care or be sent home. If symptoms meet exclusion criteria and the child cannot continue to participate in the classroom he/she will need to be picked up.
What is your discipline policy? We view discipline as a way to help correct unacceptable behaviors. Discipline practices depend on the age of the child as follows:
¶ Infants & Toddlers - Divert and Distract, Positive Reinforcement, Removal from the Situation, Ignore the Behavior, and Classroom Structure
¶ Preschool, Pre-K Plus & School Age - Divert and Distract, Positive Reinforcement, Removal from the Situation, Ignore the Behavior, Classroom Structure, Natural and Logical Consequences, Setting Examples, and Time-out
Do JLU staff have First Aid and CPR training? Yes, the majority of our staff are certified in Adult and Pediatric CPR and First Aid as well as in the administration of emergency medications. Training is held onsite annually for all staff.
Can JLU staff administer medications? Staff are ONLY able to administer emergency medications including inhalers, nebulizers, and Epi-Pens as prescribed by a physician. In some cases we can also administer oral medications such as tylenol, ibuprofen or benadryl if the medication is needed to prevent a life threatening or severe medical condition.
