Letter To The Editor: To All Parents With Children In A Childcare Setting

My name is Cynthia James. I currently operate a Large Family Childcare Home in Greenville, Florida. I have provided childcare services for many individuals in my community for over 15 years. Due to the recent outbreaks of the flu and numerous children missing school because of the cold and flu virus, I would like to provide the following information to all parents. During the cold, flu and allergy season it is really hard to determine if the symptoms a child is displaying is contagious. As childcare providers we are to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all children. This includes keeping the environment safe from contagious diseases. Even with a strict regimen of cleaning and sanitizing within any childcare program, some germs are transmitted through the air. Please remember the children play within close proximity of one another and once the germs are airborne it is difficult to treat the area. As partners in your child’s growth and development we must remember that we are also partners in maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment for all the children and staff.

Thank you,

Cynthia James
