7 pages of replies and not a single person has said that they have/would send their kids to daycare whilst sick. So who are the people who do? Because I swear 80% of the kids I worked with had either a hacking cough, snotty nose with obviously infected mucous etc. And something like tonsillitis which was rife (I caught it after 2 weeks when working in a toddler room) but they get away with that and other viruses because they can't be seen half the time, they treat the temp at home and bring them in! Annoying. Centres need to crack down, I worked at a leading centre and not once did any member of staff send a child home, they just turned a blind eye and it concerned me greatly that the little ones with snot ********* down their face would slobber all over a toy like fake food in the home corner and another kid would then do the same with said toy 5 seconds later. No amount of disinfecting and wiping little faces can prevent the speed of a toddler who wants a pretend bite of a plastic apple after ripping it from the mouth of their ill friend. They don't know, they share everything!
