I have just started to babysit I have 3 toddlers and I remember one time I excepted one child while she was running a fever but not to high but then the rest of them got sick and now it is that time again (the cold/flu). How do I let this parent know that I can no longer take their child in while they are sick or should I write a letter to all parents. It is only this one parent that does this and she is a nurse go figure...?Answer Question

I would put a letter out to all parents telling about how you can't take sick kids because it makes the others sick. I've gotten that letter plenty of times using daycare. It's standard procedure. Nobody should get mad about it. Shoot, schools do that too!

I would write a note to all parents letting them know if their child has a fever or had a fever in the past 24 hours to please keep them home. Many preschools do a health check when the child is dropped off, if they notice a runny nose (clear is okay) crusty eyes, fever any sign the child is sick the child is sent home. Children need to be at home in bed when they are sick not sent away for the day to get other children ill.
