Therefore, admin of Mindful Montessori Early Learning Center would like the parent's permission to include their child(ren) in any media coverage that is approved and screened by Mindful Montessori.
The parent gives permission to include his / her child.
The Mindful Montessori Early Learning Center recognizes the need, and is committed, to maintaining a safe, healthy, stimulating environment for children in our care and ensuring practices that minimize the spread of infectious diseases. Each Center will have a visiting health consultant work with the Center and parents regarding any health and medical concerns. All staff members are trained in CPR and First Aid. We regularly evaluate our policies and procedures in an effort to eliminate potential hazards and to improve the quality of care for the children. However, we will not be fully successful in this endeavor without the help of the parents. To maintain a healthy environment for all of the children at the Center, we cannot provide care for ill children.
Parents will be provided with a copy of the Center’s health policy as well as a copy of information from the State Department of Health when they enroll in the Mindful Montessori Early Learning Center. Parents are required to complete a health questionnaire, which requests information about their child’s sensitivities or allergies, reoccurring illnesses and medication history. We expect parents to regularly update this information. Parents are also required to provide the Center with documented evidence of the child’s immunization status. Please bring in documentation from your doctor to keep our records up-to-date whenever your child receives a new immunization. Every child is required to have a hearing and vision screen by a qualified health care provider upon turning the age of 4 years and before 5 years of age. The results shall be documented on our physician’s form, signed and dated by the health care provider, and returned to the manager for the child’s file. We are required to maintain this information.
Each child entering the Center must have a physical exam. The results of the physical must be submitted to the Center prior to the child’s first day of phase-in. To maintain enrollment, children in all Centers must have a physical exam every 12 months, with the results of these exams filed with the Center by the due date. In the event of an outbreak in the school of a vaccine-preventable disease (e.g. whooping cough, measles) children who have not been vaccinated for that disease will, as required by the Department of Health, be excluded from attending the school until the risk has passed.
Children who have any infectious illness will not be permitted access to the Center until the risk of infection to other children has passed. A doctor’s note is required before the child will be permitted to return to his/her class indicating they are free of contagion.
Parents must notify the school on the first day of the child’s absence and must supply, on the child’s return, a note detailing the reason for the absence as well as any other information pertaining to the illness. This information will be filed with the child’s records.
Should a child become ill during the course of the day or arrive ill, compromising their ability to participate in the daily activities, the parents or emergency contact will be notified and are required to take the child home. In the meantime, the child may rest on a cot in the classroom or office. Staff members will check on the sick child regularly to monitor the child’s temperature/condition and to make sure the child is comfortable.
Regular attendance is important for the child. However, there is no advantage in sending a sick child to school. A child may be too ill to participate in activities even without symptoms. A child who is not well requires additional attention from the staff, which creates a burden and promotes infection between staff and children.
Exposure to Lead A blood test will identify if your child has elevated levels on lead. It is recommended that all children have a lead screen during the child’s annual health exam. Lead exposure can occur from the following sources:
Mindful Montessori Early Learning Centers self-report that there are no lead products on site. We take extra measures to ensure from our vendors that our children’s furniture, toys and materials are lead free.
Lead Exposure can cause the following ailments:
If you feel your child may have been exposed to lead you can contact your local health agency for more information on how to proceed with care and removal of lead in your environment. To comply with the EHCC, the Mindful Montessori Early Learning Centers are a lead free environment. All buildings were built after 1978. All water provided to children is cold (drinking and cooking). All taps are run for 5 – 10 seconds before used for beverages or cooking. In keeping the Center healthy, all staff must submit their immunizations* and health reports upon employment, as well as a current TB exam. Staff members are required to re-submit TB exam results and physical results every two years.
Should a child become ill during the course of the day or arrive too ill to participate in the daily activities, the Center Management and Staff will collaborate and make the best decision whether or not to send the child home. The parents or emergency contact will then be notified and are required to take the child home. In the meantime, the child may rest on a cot in the classroom or office. Staff members will check on the sick child regularly to monitor the child’s temperature/condition and to make sure the child is comfortable. All confirmed communicable illnesses are required to be communicated with all parents of the Center. Please refer to the communication policy regarding communication of illnesses to parents.
We will ask parents to keep their child home or to remove the child from the Center under the following circumstances:
Should a child suffer a chronic condition (e.g. asthma), symptoms related to this condition should be discussed with the child’s teacher and management, including the doctor’s case plan for the condition. We need your cooperation in keeping ill children home to help us maintain a better environment for all of your children and to try to stop the spread of illness.
Parents are expected to administer ALL medication to their children. The first dose of medication must be administered at home. We encourage parents to schedule medication times around their child’s attendance at the school. It is the responsibility of the parent to come to the Center and administer the medication at the appropriate times if medication must be dispensed during the day. The following procedures apply to children who require medication, including over the counter medication, during the day:
Emergency medications must be immediately available. Epi pens and other emergency medications must be kept unlocked and travel with students outdoors. A Medication Log will be kept. Staff must supervise parents administering medication and that compliance to the five rights is met. Parent and staff member must sign and date the log. Log is kept in the center office. The Parents have read and understand the Illness Policy , the Exclusion Due To Illness Policy, and the Medication Policy set forth by the Mindful Montessori Early Learning Center.
