In-House Sick Bay
We understand that children don’t become ill when it’s convenient and it may be difficult for a family member to leave or miss work. FUN Academy has incorporated a Sick Bay for mildly ill children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age. We provide emergency back-up care for children with common childhood illnesses such as colds or flu. The Sick Bay does not accept infectious diseases i.e., chickenpox, measles, mumps, whooping cough or tuberculosis (this is not an all-inclusive list). A nurse is on duty at all times. We engage additional staff as needed to achieve staff/child ratios allowing us to provide your child with the excellent care they deserve.
When a child exhibits symptoms that would warrant removal from the classroom, the parent/guardian will be called and notified of the signs & symptoms of the illness. At this point, you will be given the opportunity to come to the Center and pick up your child, or if there is vacancy, you may have the child moved to the Sick Bay for the remainder of the day.
The Sick Bay is environmentally separated from the rest of FUN Academy with a dedicated fresh air filtration system and can care for up to 6 children. If your child is still symptomatic the next day and you require day care, you may return them to the Sick Bay (if availability) until they are cleared to return to the classroom.
