A Gentle Health & Safety Reminder

Posted by: Thinking Box Staff on: March 22, 2016

Dear Parents,

HEALTH
 
We take the health and hygiene of the children at our centre very seriously, as you have certainly all noted during your time with us :-)
 
Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease (HFMD) is entering peak season and although it is present all year round in Singapore, numbers across the island are on the rise. Kindly note that we have had NO CASES of HFMD and are currently seeking your assistance to maintain this.
 
To prevent the spread of illnesses at our centre we have strict hygiene protocols in place. We thank all the parents and caregivers/helpers for diligently washing their children’s hands before class, taking their temperatures and filling out the Health Declaration Forms. We’re sure this daily routine gives you all peace of mind. We would also like to remind you of the signs and symptoms associated with this common childhood illness:
  • fever
  • sore throat
  • ulcers in the throat, mouth and tongue
  • headache
  • rash with vesicles (small blisters 3-7 mm) on hands, feet and diaper area. The vesicles are typically on the palm side of the hands the sole side of the feet and very characteristic in appearance. The rash may also be present on the buttocks, arms and legs.
  • loss of appetite
  • vomiting and/or diarrhoea

Please do not bring your child to class or any public areas if they are exhibiting any of the above symptoms. We rely on parents’ vigilance and diligence to keep our kids healthy so please be on high alert over the coming months. If you have any queries related to our protocols please do not hesitate to ask.

We would also like to seek your cooperation with regards to informing us about other enrichment/childcare/preschool centres your child or your child’s siblings may be attending that have had confirmed cases of HFMD.  Due to the illness epidemics that other centres are having, we require this information as part of our emergency and crisis response information for the Ministry of Health.

SAFETY
 
We have recently noticed that some helpers/caregivers have been on the phone or busy chatting to a friend during pick up and throughout the dismissal process at both 12pm and 3pm, our usual pick-up times. Our priority at all times is the children’s safety – we seek your kind assistance in ensuring that children’s hands are held firmly by the caregivers/helpers upon dismissal and that they are closely supervised during these busy times to prevent accidents and children wandering off in the building alone.

 
Wishing you all a safe and healthy Easter break :-)
