    At First Steps International Academy we enforce a strict policy in order to ensure the physical health of all our children.

    • Parents must keep children at home if they are sick or appear to be ill.
    • A child experiencing fever, general body rash, diarrhea, symptoms of conjunctivitis, impetigo, head lice, yellow/green run noses or other communicable diseases or conditions will not be admitted into the center.
    • If your child becomes ill, you will be contacted immediately and will be asked to pick up the child within two hours of being notified. 
    • If your child is required to take medication, it must be prescribed by his/her physician. If the medicine is not prescribed, then a doctor’s notice must accompany the medication. A “Medicine Authorization Form #5” provided by Broward County must be filled out completely on a weekly basis and signed by the parent or guardian in order for a medicine to be administered. Please make sure that prescription medications brought by the parents or guardians are in their original container with the names of the physician and the child, and the medication directions (dosage amount and times to administer medication) written on the label. If a spoon is necessary to administer the medication, it must also be labeled with the child’s name.
