Nursery News (Ages 6 months to 6 years)

Good morning,
As many of you have heard the Montrose County School District has closed until April 13th. With the school closure we are expecting an increase of children during our Quick Care and Parents Night Out programs. At this time we will still be open for all of our programs but we are making a few changes.

1. All of our programs will require an RSVP to Debby, our nursery coordinator.
Contact Debby@ (714) 824-7475 (Call or Text)
2. All of our programs will have a capacity of 15 children.
3. All children and parents will be asked to wash their hands upon arriving at the church.
4. We will strictly be following our child sick policy.
A.Health Policies
1. The Nursery staff has the right to deny service to children who have signs or symptoms of illness. No child who arrives noticeably ill will be admitted for that day. The parents of children exhibiting any of these symptoms are to be notified at once to be taken home:
• NAUSEA OR VOMITTING
• DIARRHEA
• SEVERE COLD OR COUGHING
• SORE THROAT
• RASH OR SKIN ERUPTIONS
• FEVER OF 100 DEGREE OR HIGHER
2. Children should not return to the nursery until 24 hours fever/symptom free or until the period of contagion has passed.
3. Parents should notify the Nursery staff if their child has had a contagious illness or one of the following communicable diseases: Chicken Pox, Conjunctivitis (pink eye), Diarrhea, Fifth Disease, Giardiasis, Hand, Foot, Mouth Disease, Hepatitis A or B, Impetigo, Lice, Measles, Meningitis, Mumps, Pertussis (Whooping Cough), Pinworms, Respiratory Illness, Ringworm, Roseola, Scabies, Streptococcal sore Throat, Thrush, or Scarlet Fever.
4. If a child becomes sick or injured while in the nursery, notify the parents by phone call or in person as soon as possible. If a child receives a bump, scratch or minor injury while in the nursery, notify the parents when the child is picked up, unless other instructions are given and fill out an incident/accident form. All incident/accident forms are to be turned in to the Nursery Coordinator, the day the incident/accident happened.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Sarah Seymour
