Daily Health Check
Daily health checks help early educators to identify potential concerns about a child’s health including recent illness or injury in the child and the family. Health checks help reduce the spread of infectious diseases in child care settings by identifying children who should be excluded and enable early educators to plan for necessary care while the child is at the facility.
Every day, a trained staff member should conduct a health check of each child. This health check should be conducted as soon as possible after the child enters the child care facility and whenever a change in the child’s behavior or appearance is noted while that child is in care. For additional information on conducting a daily health check from Caring for Our Children.
