Health matters FYI
  Is your child's immunization record up too date?
Under the Day Nurseries Act, Section 33, day nurseries must ensure that any child attending the day nursery is immunized against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus, polio, haemophilus influenzae b, measles, mumps, and rubella, as recommended by the local Medical Officer of Health. Please complete the attached form and provide a photocopy of your child's complete immunization record (from birth to present). Ensure all vaccines are recorded and up to date.

EpiPen Auto-Injector Training Kit
An EpiPen Auto-Injector Training Kit is available for loan at the nursery school. It is designed to educate people with severe allergies about anaphylaxis, and to assist you in being better prepared in the event of an anaphylactic reaction. If you are interested in borrowing the kit, please ask any member of our staff. If you would like to order your own complimentary kit, visit www.EpiPen.ca.

Asthma Action Resource Kit
Also available for loan is an Asthma Action Resource Kit. It is an excellent resource for educators and parents looking after a child with asthma. It includes two story books that you can read to your child. It is developed by the Lung Association. The Asthma Action Helpline is 1-800-668-7682, where Certified Asthma Educators are available to provide education and counselling about prevention, management and treatment of asthma.

We have children in our programs with life threatening allergies to NUTS AND EGGS. At no time is it allowable for these foods to be brought to school. If your child has consumed or come into contact with any of the above allergens (i.e. peanut butter), it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to ensure that you have cleaned these products off your child’s face, hands, and clothing. The families of these children deserve assurance that their children will be safe at nursery school. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
