I haven't had to deal with this yet as only DS is currently in care, but was wondering when both kids are in childcare, if one comes down sick, do you just keep that one home or do you keep them both home, JIC the other may get it too and potentially pass it on?
I am leaning toward keeping them both home, but most people I speak to say they would still send the one that was not (yet) sick.
Am I just being over the top?

Depends what they're sick with.
Asthma, runny nose the other gets sent.
Gastro, no way!

I would just send the one that is sick so I can concentrate on looking after the sick one. That is unless it is gastro or they are showing early signs of getting the same sickness. I know there is a limit to how many days they can have sick before cuts to Childcare benefits so that would also be something I'd consider

I would send the one who is well as long as they weren't showing any early symptoms.

thanks ladies, I really appreciate the help, I think I am being a tad over cautious lol.
so general rule, if it is something highly contagious (gastro) everyone stays home, if its just run of the mill runny nose etc only the patient stays home.
