Diarrhea

 

For the purpose of this policy Diarrhea means a bowel movement which is significantly liquid.  

Children with diarrhea, particularly infants, are at increased risk of dehydration and should be more closely monitored.  

 

If a child has diarrhea while they are at home parents must keep them home until 24 hours have passed since the last episode of diarrhea

 

If a child has 2 episodes of diarrhea while at the child care centre, parents must pick them up and keep them home until 24 hours have passed since the last episode of diarrhea
