Health and Wellness Policy

"*" indicates required fields

These guidelines have been created to comply with Illinois guidelines for safeguarding the health of ALL children in the care of Precious Lambs Preschool. This policy will help prevent children from contracting both viral and bacterial infections. To differentiate, a viral infection is one that does not require medicine and a bacterial infection is one that does require medication, but both are contagious.

The symptoms that we ask you to keep your child home for include but are not limited to:
