Wait until its gone. Diarhea can be contagious and what if she has an accident she would be embarresed

I would wait. I keep my kids out for anything that could be dangerous, like a fever, or anything that would be disrupting their learning, like throwing up or diarrhea. I wouldn't want them running to the bathroom every ten minutes while in class. Plus with a young child, I would want to monitor them for dehydration.

Keep her out still.

Keep her home. Diarhea sucks for the child, the staff, and the kids who will probably catch the tummy bug.

Ours has the policy of 24 hours free before child can return.  Can be a pain, but the policy is there for a reason :)

The rule of thumb for fever diarrhea, and vomit is 24 hours.

Wait wait wait. Twenty four hours fever, med, puke, diarrhea free is the typical mantra at most daycaresvand schools

Ours has a rule after 2 diarrhea s they send the kid home and can't return until diarrhea free for 24 hours. I'd probably just stay home.
