Parent Considerations for Daycare and Child Care in Galveston

Child care Tips for Parents: Medication can be administered to your child at Galveston child care centers however there are strict guidelines that parents must follow. Prescription medication must be in the original container with an unaltered label and have your child's name clearly identified on the label. A Medical Release Form will typically need to be completed that provides details of all medications, dosage and times to be given. Preschools and providers of child care in Galveston TX will only administer "Over the Counter" medication with a doctor's note. Medications must be given directly to the preschool or daycare personnel, and do not leave medication in your child's lunch box or classroom. You should also check with your Galveston child care provider to determine the hours during which they will be able to administer medications. For example some providers of daycare and child care in Galveston TX do not administer during the hours when children are taking naps. Quality providers of child care in Galveston TX will have written emergency procedures that are practiced periodically (usually monthly). In addition, staff members will be certified in first aid and CPR. For Galveston child care centers, teachers discuss emergency preparedness with children on a regular basis.

Daycare emergency drills may be carried out on both an informed and surprise basis to ensure that everyone is adequately prepared. Providers of child care in Galveston TX may require that parents provide an emergency kit for their children. Usually these kits will are due on your child's first day of daycare, and will need to be updated yearly.
