All children get sick at some time, but parents still hate to see it happen. While parents can prepare for higher fevers, sleepless nights, and give extra love and special care, it can still be a difficult experience. Yet, fevers, sleepless nights, and lots of love are all a part of the healing process. Since a child’s immune system is still developing against immunity, viruses and bacteria, he is much more prone to illness. With so many possibilities, it can be difficult for doctors to diagnose the illness especially when it is a recurring problem with no specific cause. At some point, every parent should ask the question: Is my childcare center making my child sick?
An illness can spread very easily from one child to another. If you see several children who are sick simultaneously, with the same symptoms it is possible that the infection started at the childcare center. If only your child is ill, then it is less likely due to the center, although parents should always investigate. When this happens, note the type of infection, when the infection started and how frequently in occurs. For example, when you see gastrointestinal symptoms occurring regularly, changes in the overall hygiene at the center should be addressed. Inform the director so that the source of the problem can be determined. You can also contact your local health department association that reviews health and safety for child care centers in your area.
