    I have let a sick toddler finish the day because I knew she’d be in her contained playpen for nap, then straight outside (I disinfected during nap). So that part I understand.

    They are voluntary in my province as well. I try to figure out the reasoning (without sounding like it matters). If it's for allergies or medical reasons (preemies, organ issues) then I accept them...

    I do M-F half days, because I also take after school children that come at 2pm (strange school hours here). So this way I still have my spots filled, but the am children I have here have a stay at...

  9. One family, 3rd time coming with pink eye.

    I'm not sure what to do here. Same family, 3rd time a child has come with pink eye (over 6 months, so it's not continuous). Either it's not obvious til midday (when I realise I have cleaned their eye...

    I would send them a written message (text or email) that they have not been following the contract they signed. For that reason, you will require payment for the day's outstanding (that they had...
