if you employer accepts sick kids, then that's policy. most daycares, at least the ones i've used, will not allow a child to stay that 1)has a fever, 2) is vomiting/diarrhea (both of those have to be clear 24hrs before returning to daycare). also, both daycares i've used has additional policies in place for those parents that are picky about their snotty/achy kids...''if the child is too sick, without fever or nausea/vomit/diarrhea, to participate in normal play/activiites, keep them home.'' i'm sure its a judgement call on the director at that point, but really..what can you do? you work in an environment where all kinds of illnesses can crop up, if not on a continual basis. the best you can do, as a worker in a daycare, is take all the precautions you can..you know, just like the ones they try to teach the kids.

Man I cant stand when parents do that. I dont do it because i would not want other kids getting sick. i understand that parents have work and cant take off. But they should also have a back up plan for when their kids get sick. mY Oldest is 12 and is at home as we speak because he has a bad cough. I would not send him to school that way. But later i will go and get his assignments though so he wont be backed up or missing out on anything. I cannot stand when my kids are sick. I dont get any sleep And i let them sleep in my bed so imagine a 12 y/o in the bed with you and you Dh. Not much room to move.
