I've had an interesting experience. One of the kids came down with the absolutely worst case of impetigo I've ever seen. I sent the child home immediately after he arrived when doing the entry check. His parents insist the Doctor said it wasn't contagious. In the past I've been infected by kids I refused to admit the child. They told me both Doctors said it wasn't contagious, yet all our information in child care says it is. Today this parent argued with me that it's not contagious that only we childcare providers insist it is. My contract also states we don't permit it in childcare. If Doctors are telling parents it's okay for drooling, runny impetigo being admittable in child care settings what are we to do? Am I wrong, or am I right?Answer Question

Do what the person who signs your check says to do. (That is the daycare center). You did right, they need to take it to someone over you if they have a problem. They can bring a note from the doc but only let your supervisor accept it. It is not worth losing your job just to shut them up.
