About 90 percent of the time when children present with moderate illness symptoms the parents feel it is either teething or an ear infection. These are two"illnesses" that are not contagious which would allow the child to be in daycare despite symptoms that would otherwise exclude them from care.
It is a common misconception that children get fevers when they are teething. Children will not be allowed to attend the daycare if they have a fever, persistent non clear runny nose, coughing, or diarrhea that coincides with teething. Children will be allowed to attend daycare if they present swollen gums and drooling associated with teething.
