The health of your child is very important to us. Children are very generous about sharing their germs with each other. Therefore you are required to keep your child home when he/she has any sign of illness that are outlined in our policy entitled: "Policy for Sick Children"
If your child becomes ill at school you will be called and we will request that you come and bring your child home. It is very important that we can reach you at all times. If you will not be at home please leave a number where you can be reached.
Emergency medical treatment will be sought in cases of extreme medical emergency when all efforts to reach parents have failed.
It is the philosophy of the Giving Nest that every child deserves a developmentally appropriate, safe, and nurturing school experience. Therefore, it is our policy that if a child exhibits behaviors such as aggression, antisocial behavior, developmentally inappropriate behavior, or if a child requires an excessive amount of attention that would disrupt the balance of the student/teacher ratio, a conference will be arranged. During the conference suitable plans that would best benefit both the child and the school will be discussed. In the event that a parent chooses not to follow the plans the teacher and the director have outlined, it is the Giving Nest Policy that the child will be excluded from the program until a mutually agreed upon plan can be made between the school and the parents.
Division of Youth & Family Services Guidelines:
a. Circumstances may warrant immediate expulsion of a child from the school, if the parent and /or child exhibit dangerous behavior. b. The Giving Nest shall not expel a child based solely on the child’s parent making a complaint to

regarding policies and procedures.
