Health & Medication


State Laws

Health Regulations are determined by the California State Department of Social Services and the State Department of Health. For the protection of all children enrolled in our program, the following requirements are necessary:


  • Every child must have a pre-admission health evaluation completed by a licensed physician.
  • Every child must be immunized for tetanus, diptheria, hepatitis B, HIB (haemophilus influenzae type B), whooping cough, polio, measles, and varicella as required. Information on vaccinations can be found here.
  • Tuberculin clearance is required.
  • Parents must complete a Pre-admission Health History and Record Form.


Is your child well enough to attend school?

Each child must be healthy enough to participate in the center’s regular program. It is the parents’ responsiblity to verify that their child’s health is adequate for participation in program activities before bringing them to school each day. Should parents observe any of the following symptoms, parents are required to adhere to the following guidelines regarding keeping the child at home.


  • Symptom & How Long to Keep Child Home:
  • Fever of 100.4 or above: until the temperature is normal for 24 hours
  • Cold/Flu: until thick yellow or green mucous discharge is no longer draining from the nose, and coughing has subsided
  • Diarrhea/vomiting: until loose stools and vomiting have subsided and the child has returned to normal eating without an upset stomach
  • Ear ache/sore throat: until child has been seen and treated by a physician and/or symptoms subside
  • Red, watery eyes: until eyes return to normal, are no longer red and burning or itching
  • Rash: until the rash disappears, or it is determined that the rash is not a result of a communicable disease


Daily Health Check

Every student’s health is of utmost importance to us. State Licensing requires our staff to complete a health check for each child daily upon arrival in the program. If the Director or teacher determines that a child is ill, he/she will not be admitted on that day. If a child becomes ill while at the center, the staff will notify the parents by phone to take the child from the center.

When a child is sent home ill, he/she may not attend school the following day. Children may not return to the center until they are symptom free for 24 hours. If you are not sure whether or not your child is well enough to attend school, please call the front desk and ask for more information.

Children with Disabilities

It is our center’s policy to accept children in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), its regulations, and any other applicable laws. We review each child’s situation on a case-by-case basis, and communicate with the parents on what would be best for that child’s situation.


Allergies

Our staff is careful to attend to the needs of any child with allergies. If a doctor has diagnosed your child as having an allergy, please bring in a statement from the physician stating what the allergy is and what cautions our staff should take, and we will make sure to follow the orders provided.


Medication & Sunscreen

The CrossPoint Children’s Center staff is authorized to administer oral medication as long as there is a current prescription from a physician and a completed Permission to Administer Medication form from the parent.

If you want your child to wear sunscreen during afternoon outside play time, please provide the office with a completed Permission to Administer Medication form and a bottle of sunscreen labeled with your child’s name.


Accidents & Injuries

Any time a child sustains an injury at school, our staff notifies the parents via written report, with one copy given to the parent and one copy kept at school. If a serious injury occurs, including a head injury, the parents are notified via phone immediately, and are given a written report upon their arrival at the center.
