It's awfully hot/cold outside--will you keep my child indoors today so s/he won't get sick?

State Licensing regulations require children to spend at least an hour a day outdoors, except in the most extreme weather conditions. We will make certain that your child is dressed for the season and is only out for an appropriate length of time.

Despite the common belief that children get sick from being outdoors, illness in child care settings is actually reduced by taking children out of closed environments and into fresh air. Naturally, if your pediatrician has provided written notice that your child is well enough to be in group care, but should be kept inside due to a health problem, we will honor that directive.
