I'm with @amyd on this one.
If kids have been cleared by doctors, and are haven't got what the centre deems a sickness then I don't see what the issue is. Dd1 had a weird vomiting bug a couple of months ago on the Sunday. Took her to the doc on Monday to check if she was good to go to daycare on Tues (plus I needed a cert for being away) and yep he was happy with it. Should we not trust our health care providers?
On an aside. We can't spend our whole life not doing anything cos there might be a low immunity person at school, buses, trains, planes etc. Whilst our daycare has a no nuts policy eggs and milk are allowed. Now there is a kid in dd1s kindy room that has an egg allergy. I checked with the carers if we need to not send in products with egg. They said no. So I send in baked goods as normal.
Ie both my kids and I have colds. Gunky green snotty colds. We are due to fly home tomorrow afternoon. I'm still taking my flight even if we are sick. Are we to skip our flight??
If they clear up in time they are going to daycare on Wednesday as I have appts I cannot break/change. If not I will have to drag them along.
Now whilst I sympathize with parents with kids who get sick easily, I don't think it's right to expect society as a whole to never leave the house when sick. I can be absolutely honest and say I save my sick days at work for the kids. I trudge along when I have colds, coughs and minor illnesses. If people object - feel free to pay my bills when I dont get paid.
