My daughter has had temperatures for the last 24 hours. She has been her happy self during the day, just more wakeful during the night. No symptoms of illness apart from the temperature. Will daycare still let her go tomorrow and just manage it with Panadol?

At our centre we are no longer allowed to administer panadol. Our director has a strict rule if they're sick enough for panadol, they're sick enough to stay home.
If she doesn't have another temp by morning though you could always send her and see how she goes

My daycare sends kids home with a temp. Try panadol for the rest of the days and see how they are in the morning. If no temp id send them.

I always think of how i would feel if I had that illness. I don't think it's fair to send a child with a temp to daycare and expect them to manage it .

What temp did your DS have? Many centres have an exclusion policy (eg 24 hrs) after a temp of a certain level.

My daycare sends kids home with temps and also has an exclusion policy of 24 hours after a temp.

I would take bubs to the docs for a checkup regarding this; they don't get high temps without a reason. Also little ones can appear happy and well even though they are sick- they're strong and resilient, my DS sang and played happily at the hospital after requiring 6 stitches in his face when he was 2!
Also DD experienced a few days of high temps with no other symptoms and it turned out she had roseola virus.
I have also worked in childcare centres and they wouldn't take a risk, especially as it could result in other kids becoming ill.

Thank you! I know our centre administers Panadol but maybe they administer it then call for parents to come collect them. I'll see how she goes through the night then if she still has a temp in the morning will take her to the Dr. Her temp today got to 38.1.

I wouldn't send her. Does she have an ear infection maybe? My son doesn't show any symptoms for ear infections apart from a high temp.
