If a child becomes ill while in our care as indicated by the symptoms below, the parent or guardian will be contacted and expected to pick up the child within one hour of contact. The child will be separated from the other children until the parent's arrival. Your child may return to the preschool 24 hours after the pick up time, provided te symptom(s) has subsided or a doctor's note is provided indicating there is no infection or contagion present.

According to Florida State regulations, if a child displays any of the following symptoms, HE OR SHE MUST BE KEPT AT HOME. Please do not bring your child to CCJA if he/she has displayed any of these symptoms at home. We respectfully request that you begin treatment at home to avoid spreading contagion to the other children.


  • Fever of 100 or higher. In the event that this is a result of teething, please bring us a doctor's note to confirm that there is no contagion or infection present.
  • Diarrhea one or more times during the school day.
  • Nasal secretions that are thick and cloudy, yellow, or green.
  • Cloudy or colored nasal secretions may indicate an allergy and ensuing infection. Please check with your doctor to rule out infection and bring us a doctor's note in order to return.
  • Sore throat with fever or throat spots.
  • Cough accompanied by fever, chills, and/or the coughing up of green or yellow mucus.
  • Vomiting, or nausea.
  • Eye drainage of any type.
  • Unusual rashes. Please bring a doctor's note in order for your child to return.
  • A child who is not feeling well, such as lethargic behavior and/or crying.
  • Any other symptom that may be present itself that the Director or Assistant Director feels may require medical attention due to possible infection, contagion, or the discomfort of the child.


Once your child is feeling well again and normal behaviors have returned, your child may return to the preschool. However, you may be asked to provide us with a doctor's note stating that your child is well enough to return to school. State guidelines indicate that the child may return to the preschool after illness when the following conditions have been met:

  • Fever has broken for 24 hours.
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea has subsided for 24 hours.
  • At least four doses of antibiotics have been given over a 24-hour period for any type of infection.
