    Default Cough- kinder wwyd

    DD 5 seems ok, running around eating etc. however she has a pretty frequent dry cough. She also sounds a bit chesty and has complained of a sore throat.

    Assuming she is still like this tomorrow would you send to kindergarten?

    My concern is last year she had a cough for weeks (she will miss so much kindergarten if happens this year and I keep her home)

    And she does seems her normal happy self, maybe bit more tired than usual but I don't want to infect other kids obviously!!

    Wwyd?

    No. I don't think it would be fair on the other children and carers.

    If she's only a couple of days into it and complaining of a sore throat than no I wouldn't. Once the pain passes though then sure, I'd send them. Coughs can hang around for ages in littlies.

    If she has been tired and complaining of a sore throat too then no, I wouldn't send her

    I'd probably go to the dr. Only because there is a lot more WC around in some areas. Otherwise if everything else was clear and there is no pain, fever or other signs of illness (just a cough) I would send her.

    No I wouldn't my DS almost 3 has just been diagnosed with Asthma as he has had a cough for a few weeks now. We had to get certificate from doctors to confirm not contagious before we where aloud to send him to daycare.

    Not with a sore throat. If it was just a post-virus cough then I would send her.

    As per others - if it was just the dry cough at the tail end of a cold then i'd say ok to send her but with the sore throat and tiredness sounds like she's just getting sick rather than coming out the other end IYKWIM? So I think keep her home so she can rest up and hopefully stop others getting sick too!
