In order to promote and maintain the health of our children and staff, we ask that children NOT be brought to the Knox Nursery or Toddler Programs if they have any of the following:Kids hanging backpacks

  • Persistent and/or green nasal discharge
  • Hacking cough
  • Fever, diarrhea or vomiting in the last 24 hours
  • Undiagnosed or untreated rash
  • Communicable disease of any type

In order to protect all children, a child with these symptoms will be isolated and the parent notified. In the case of chickenpox, please do not return the child to the program until pox have completely scabbed over, which will be at least 10 days after they first appear. In order to minimize the spreading of germs infant toys and linens are washed promptly and toddler toys are sanitized regularly.
