At Niseko Kids Club Babysitting Service, the health and well-being of the children entrusted to our care is of paramount importance. We understand the risks associated with contagious illnesses and are committed to maintaining a safe environment for all children. To ensure the health and safety of everyone involved, we have implemented the following policy:

  1. Pre-Screening of Children: Prior to booking a babysitting appointment, parents are required to inform Niseko Kids Club Babysitting Service if their child is experiencing any symptoms of illness, including fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, rash, diarrhea, vomiting, or any other symptoms indicative of a contagious illness.
  2. Exclusion Criteria: Children who are currently ill with a contagious illness will not be eligible for babysitting services until they have fully recovered and are no longer contagious. This includes children with fevers above 100.4°F (38°C), vomiting, diarrhea, or any other symptoms that may pose a risk of spreading illness to the babysitter or other children under our care.
  3. Illness During Babysitting Session: If a child displays symptoms of illness during a babysitting session, the babysitter will immediately notify the parents and follow their instructions regarding care and further action. If necessary, the babysitter may terminate the session early to prevent the potential spread of illness to other children or to themselves.
  4. Communication with Parents: Open communication between parents and babysitters is crucial. Parents will be promptly notified if their child exhibits symptoms of illness during a babysitting session, and they are expected to arrange for immediate pickup of their child.

By adhering to this Contagious Illness Policy, we aim to create a safe and healthy environment for all children entrusted to our care. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us maintain these standards of care.
