When do you keep your child home from daycare?
My son has had a cold for a week he has a runny nose and a little cough (cough is much worse at night) but is fine active and running around.
Just contemplating wether to send him or not today

How sick is too sick for daycare?

If he will be miserable, or make other kids sick, keep at home. Otherwise I would send him, kids tend to have snotty noses for a long time.

If he is happy and acting like normal then I don't see why not. The child care centre cannot send him home because of a runny nose.

If his nose is running clear send him. If it is running green or yellow keep him home.

Honestly, imo if you have to ask the question, he should stay home. Thats just my opinion though and what I would do with my kids.

My DS pretty much has a runny nose all the time - he is always running around, no temperature etc..
If I kept him home based on a runny nose, I would rarely be able to work.

If you have any doubt at all I would keep him home just in case. My ds has just recovered from hand foot and mouth and a cold. He's running around and seems fine but still we kept him home today.

I wasn't saying that because of the nose but the cough. With my kids they often develop into something more.

Slight colds are fine to send children to preschool with as long as they aren't miserable, coughing non stop etc. Sometimes if my dd still has that runny nose hanging around I usually give her some demazine or the like before school just so it doesn't annoy her all day.
