Alternatives for the Care of Mildly Ill Children: United States Air Force Child Care Program.
Brant, Linda J.
Information related to day care center policies for dealing with mildly ill children is provided in this document. Data cited in the report indicate wide inconsistencies at the present time in policies and procedures for screening ill children in Air Force child care centers and in the policies followed for admitting and readmitting children who have had a mild illness. To ascertain how states restrict the admission of ill children, a compilation of state day care licensing requirements was reviewed. Additionally, models for the care of sick children and programs for the care of mildly ill children are briefly described, and research on illness and child care is briefly discussed. Concluding sections of the document focus on preventive measures for military child care centers and alternatives for the care of mildly ill children in military centers. (Author/RH)
