I would like your advice about that... Today was the first day for my daughter in a day care centre (she used to go to family day care and the other days she is going to preschool). I found on the internet that a child can be excluded from day care when he has "influenza-like illness". My daughter is coughing and runny noze and looks miserable, but she isn't infectious (at all or any more -- I know because it's been on for one week and she had two days of high fever and then the coughing started and even the doctor said she is alright to go to day care). Still, the teacher this morning didn't want her to stay. She allowed us to stay for about an hour when the children were playing outside and then, when everyone went inside, she asked us to leave. Is that how it is in all day care centres? I am supposed to work... If I can't leave my children in a day care centre when they have a cold (and that happens every second day these days in Canberra), then what am I supposed to do?
Thanks for your help!
