    Threatening to call an ambulance is ludicrous. I am sure the ambos would
    not appreciate the waste of their resources either!

    Agree that we can't all instantly pick up our kids if daycare calls... It takes a little time to get the message in the first place and then to get there!

    Tbh if the daycare said they needed an ambulance pick up I'd be ok with it and I'd go straight to the hospy.

    PHI covers ambo calls....

    But pretty ridiculous to call them over nothing. Occ I'm 1-2hrs away from my girls daycare. Dad is interstate and whilst I do have a friend closer and listed as emergency pick up, she has 2 kids under 2 herself and would need time to mobilize. Plus if in theatre I dont have my phone and often cannot leave mid procedure. So add an hour to when I can get my kid.

    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

    Some Child Care centres don't administer panadol. So if the child has a high grade temp, the parent's aren't able to get there quickly and they can't get it to come down, they will call an ambulance. Not sure what the circumstances were in the previous post but for the majority of centres, they have a choice to make. It may turn out to be nothing or it may turn into something. They'll risk an ambo over a convulsion anyday. And TBH, they have to cover themselves as much as the child.

    Our daycare wont give panadol even with parental instruction.
    I don't blame them for calling an ambulance. If they didn't and something happened everyone would be screaming why didn't they call one.

    Yawn. Just recounting what happened. I'm sure her parents were on their way.

    So glad to see this topic! My DD 2.5 went to child care yesterday as I was sitting feeding dd2 4 months a mum came in to drop off her dd I overheard the convo with one of the carers, her dd had a temp of 39 but mum had given her panadol before they came in, her lo was screaming swollen eyes a spluttering coughing everywhere! The mum also mentioned her dd had no sleep for last 2 nights!! At 10 pm last night my dd woke up screaming, couldn't really speak swollen eyes and a temp of 40!! She was so distraught no sleep last night or today, dh had to stay home from work!! I will send my dd when the dr has given me the ok after a viral infection, a common cold is no big deal but that poor child yesterday should not have been there, I now have to keep dd1 away dd2 as I have never seen dd1 this sick and am pertrified dd2 will catch it!! Childcare centres need to implement a new policy about absent days being refunded or something, I have no idea how to get through the next few days!!!

    Once your children are put of daycare and at school it's a WHOLE different ball game.

    My DD has had kids obviously unwell with temps etc who get to lay down in reading corner for the afternoon etc. The parents are more lax, and so are the schools. Thankfully by primary school most kids have fairly decent immune systems so it's not a huge issue most of the time. Croup itself is not contagious. Croup is caused by a respiratory virus like the common cold that May or may not develop into croup in some children. I have always gotten clearance for my children from the Dr after just 24 hours of steroids and they have gone back to school or daycare. It's one of the risks you take with daycare. If you child is frail then other options like FDC or a nanny might be better. Daycare (like aged care homes) are a breeding ground for germs and viruses and it's not going to change!

    Our daycare has a stipulation that you sign on enrollment stating you won't send your child until 24 hours after fever returns to normal and 48 hours after any gastro. My DS1 has been there for 3 years and has never come home with anything more than a cold. I find it scary that some parents have no respect for the carers and other children in the centers they expect to care for their children
