3.1 You are most likely to see children get colds, which are runny noses, coughs, and sometimes nausea. You also see children get the stomach flue during specific seasons. Diarrhea is also very common to see as well. 

3.2 Making sure that if you see symptoms of these kinds that you immediately report it to your director and keep them updated.

3.1. What illnesses and injuries are you most likely to see? Can you identify symptoms and recommended care?

I often see a cold and the flu as illnesses. Small injuries usually include scratches from falling outside and bumps from falling down. We can always take the child's temperature and identify symptoms.

3.2. How do your practices reduce exposure to childhood illnesses?

Ways to reduce exposure starts with keeping your center cleaned and sanitized. You must also send a child home with a fever and not let them return until the fever has been gone for 24 hours. Also sending a child home if they vomit or have diahreah more than twice.

3.1. Pink eye and hand food mouth disease are two common illnesses. We often see colds and the flu, sometimes including diarrhea depending on the season. We are likely to see cuts, scrapes and bumps from falling while playing. I can identify the symptoms and make appropriate recommendations.

3.2. We ask parents to keep children home and not return to the child care program for at least 24 hours (as well as advise them to take the child to the doctor) when showing signs of illness. We take great care to clean and sanitize the classroom, and teach child good hygiene practices like covering their mouths and not sharing tissues.

3.1) Bruises, bumps and scrapes for injury, which are all fairly easy to identify and treat. Colds and flu are the most common illnesses in my experience, the symptoms are easy to confuse with allergies if you're not careful.

3.2) Regular handwashing is the biggest and most important step in keeping yourself and your class healthy. Sending sick kids home and making sure they stay until there symptoms have subsided for 24 hrs is another important step.

We often see the common cold, flu, and pink eye. We also often see cuts, scrapes, rashes, bumps and bruises, and sprains.

It is effective to contact parents when a child is ill and send them home. It is also effective to keep your environment clean so we aren't sharing too many germs.

The illnesses that are most common are colds and flus. These symptoms are runny noses, coughing, and fever. Recommended care is meds, rest and water and if the child is really not well, they should be sent home.

3.2. How do your practices reduce exposure to childhood illnesses?


These practices will help reduce the germs that are spread in the classroom.

3.1
Illnesses most likely to see are colds and flus. Puking, fever, runny nose and coughing are common symptoms. If the child has a fever or is throwing up, the child needs to be at home resting. They need to be 24 hours puke and fever free before returning to the facility.

3.2
By requiring the child stays home for 24 hours after fever/puking symptoms stop, the chance of being contagious are significantly lowered.  Hand washing and proper disinfectant/ practices will also reduce the spread of these germs in the facility.

3.1 Illnesses most likely to see are common colds (coughing, sneezing, runny nose) and the flue (fever, chills, exhaustion, diarrhea). Kids that are sick need to be home to rest and prevent the spreading of the illness until symptoms have been gone for at least 24 hours. The most common injuries are being bitten, and falling outside and getting a scratched knee or hand.

3.2 By making sure the children go home as soon as possible after realizing they're sick, and aren't at the center for at least 24 hours after their fever, diarrhea, vomiting etc are gone the chances of an illness being spread to other children reduces.

3.1 Flu symptoms such as cold, cough, vomiting, and diarrhea. Recommended care would be contacting nurse and discuss with teacher whether or not to send child home. Bruises, bumps, and cuts are what you would likely see. contacting teacher and nurse.


3.2 We reduce childhood illness by practicing good hygiene with the children. Making sure they wash their hands when required.
