As required by the Family Child Care Licensing Rule, any injury to a child while in the care of Country Fun Child Care will be reported to a child’s parents/legal guardians. A signed copy of the report will be kept as part of the child’s record for at least 3 years following discontinuation of care. A child’s parents/legal guardians may request a copy of any report. Where necessary under law, the report will be forwarded to the governing agency required. A child’s parents/legal guardians and state licensing staff know children are active and no amount of child proofing and supervision can prevent all injuries. However, reporting juries can help prevent them in the future by identifying injury patterns specific to the child care’s environment, and/or with a child who may need help with difficulties associated with balance, vision or foot positioning.
Medical attention is a child’s parents/legal guardians decision. When a child’s parents/legal guardians cannot be reached Country Fun Child Care will act in their stead when a decision on immediate medical attention is needed. A child’s parents/legal guardians have provided written permission for this care to be secured.
Serious injuries will be reported to the Child Care Licensing Unit at 287-9300 within 24 hours.
