I know having a child become sick at school or day care is unavoidable, but under no circumstances should a parent send their already sick child to any school or day care. I have had my children in day care centres and the amount of times I went into the centre to pick my kids up or drop them off and seeing kids sick or looking generally unwell is unbelievable. I know some people have to work to earn money, but I think taking a day or 2 off is far better than making everyone else’s children sick too. If my child has a stomach bug then they are home for at least 2 days after they are back to their normal selves.
