    Default Re: Strict new hygiene rules for childcare will wrap kids in a bubble, says AMA

    I've worked at a centre where into all the other more obvious cleaning we had to disinfect each bar of every safety gate, every internal window and mirror (cos toddlers smoosh their faces against them) each day - on top of twice daily mopping, twice daily toilet cleans etc etc etc etc

    I was casual there 2 hours of my day was dedicated to cleaning. Which is fine, it's part of the job, but the idea of more cleaning, I don't think the people making these rules have really considered every minute spent cleaning is a minute not spent engaging with children. You do what you can do, but it doesn't always work to involve children in cleaning particularly when you are handling cleaning chemicals!!!

    And at the end of the day the children are more likely to literally catch off eachother not necessarily from touching things and the Babies put toys in mouths that's how they catch germs.
    And as for cleaning toys you can't possibly clean after every single child contact with a toy, catching germs in those environments are inevitable.

    I understand some parents don't have a choice and they have to go to work to pay bills but I did see a lot of really sick babies there like limp feverish babies... It was scary seeing these kids so sick and not home or at the ER!
    It's so tough when they first start. Both my husband and I used all our sick days before DD had been at daycare for a year. It annoyed the hell out of me to see clearly sick kids at daycare when we always kept her off.

    It was like some parents would drug up their kids for the drop off, then let them slowly show how sick they were as the day went on and hope noone called them to pick their child up. So frustrating!

    There is nothing worse than seeing a clearly sick child at daycare Imagine how miserable they'd be.

    Completely agree. If parents kept their children home when they are unwell cleaning wouldn't have to be so extreme.

    Toys are already washed once a week, at least they have been in every center I have worked at. As I said before babies room toys are washed daily and mouthed toys are thrown in a bucket and washed when they other toys are done.

    That's what I've always seen done in nurserys. If baby put something in their mouth, when the drop it it gets turfed in a bucket/container/sink.
