of illness which include but are not limited to the following:
- Fever over 101F with accompanying behavior change or other symptoms

If children need to be sent home for the above signs of illness:
- they will be excluded from their classroom whenever possible and wait in the main office on the lower level of the building until pick-up.
- Emergency pick-up persons are expected to arrive within ONE HOUR of notification of a sick child.
- All emergency pick-up persons will be called until a pick-up plan is made.
If excluded from care due to illness, JLU asks that the child NOT return to the
center for a minimum of 24 hours and symptom free. A child can return to care prior to 24 hours ONLY with medical documentation
clearing the child to return.
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
- 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.
