Kids' Zone cannot accept children that have fever, diarrhea, vomiting, or any other signs of illness, to limit the exposure of other kids to illness. If a child is sent home with a fever of 101.0 or greater, they must be fever-free for 24 hours before they return. If a child is sent home with diarrhea or vomiting, they must be illness-free for 24 hours before they return to the center.
Kids' Zone will give prescription medication to your child as long as it is in the original container with the child's name on it. Parents will be required to sign and date a consent form before any medication is administered.
If a medical emergency occurs that involves a child, Kids' Zone will make every effort to reach out to the parent or guardian by calling the numbers listed in the child's file. If the parent or guardian cannot be reached and the child requires medical assistance, 9-1-1 will be called.
Hearing & Vision
Children ages 4 and older will be screened for vision and hearing each Fall. Parents will receive a copy of the results. If a child is not present on the day of the screening, the parent will be responsible for obtaining a screening and providing the results to Kids' Zone.
