Allergies are among the highest rated of chronic conditions in children. Not surprisingly, allergy symptoms rank at the top of the frustration scale for parents looking to uncover the causes behind their child’s allergies and a possible solution. Being a parent with a child suffering from allergies means that you must have a sound knowledge regarding both indoor and outdoor allergies.

For example, common types of food allergies include tree nuts, soy, wheat, peanuts, egg, and milk. Non-food allergies can be caused by ordinary things, like house dust mites, insect bites, pets, plants, and pollens. Children may be allergic to medications or rubber, as well. Typical allergic reactions include runny nose or congestion, itchy, eyes, and ear issues. More severe reactions could be rash, hives, swelling, stomach discomfort, vomiting, or diarrhea.

In order to keep your child safe from allergic reactions when at daycare, you need to know precisely what will cause an allergic reaction with your child and share it with the daycare provider.

Exposure to allergies at our center would be similar to those found in the home. Before sending your child to Heaven’s Elect, it is crucial to meet with the staff to discuss the allergies of child and any concerns regarding medication. It is particularly significant if your child would your have a critical allergic reaction that may require auto-injectable epinephrine. If your child is allergic to any food item, you must make sure that our daycare staff is well aware of your child’s food allergy to avoid those items.

Heaven’s Elect staff is dedicated to your child’s well-being. When made aware of food or other allergies, we take every step to protect the children in our care. We regularly request that parents keep us informed of their child’s allergies. If you have any new information or that questions, please contact us.
