When children should NOT go to nursery school or daycare


Whether or not a child goes to daycare is a decision that parents must make according to their circumstances, but in the event that they choose to take them, there are special situations in which children should not go to nursery school or daycare . When should children not go to nursery school?

Nursery schools are educational establishments, private, public or subsidized (private of public management), whose staff is dedicated to the exclusive education of young children, whose ages range from 0 to 3 years, who are not yet suitable to enter school .

The Recommended age to start daycare is between 18 and 24 months of age, since from 18 months the baby already has autonomy, can walk with firm steps, utters his first words, has learned to play with other children, usually begins to control toilet bowls and contact with his mother is no longer so necessary, supposedly.

All this is clear in theory because there are parents who, since the mother's maternity leave ends and she does not have any other type of help, they are forced to find a nursery school for the child. Although at first it may be a painful process, we must think that the nursery school is a place where there are professionals with a vocation, prepared and trained to take care of our children.

The Advantages of reaching children at these centers at an early age is that they begin to socialize with other children earlier and thus their development and language are favored and, in general, they gain autonomy and independence, since they lose the fear of separation from the mother and are exposed to educational experiences related to the technology and modernity.

When children begin to frequent other places, in this case the nursery, they normally begin to work and develop their immune system and create immunity to protect them and that they have the ability to defend themselves against microorganisms in the environment and those possessed by each child or adult person who interacts with them.

It would be impossible and inappropriate to have children in a glass bubble, since that would cause their immune system to not be modulated, not regulated, not developed, or acquire an adequate response to external agents, thus producing inappropriate and much more intense reactions, such as 'allergic or atopic reactions' .

Also, due to the very immaturity of this defense system of children, sometimes they develop pathologies that are the cause of absenteeism from nursery school, so that day is somewhat complicated, especially for the mother, who will almost always be the that you should stay in the care of your child at home. Other times the mistake of wearing them is made to avoid problems at work, which almost always leads to complications in the child's health.

With this information that I present below, I want parents to understand that common sense should prevail and that they know that there are diseases in children, especially infectious, for which it is advisable that the child remain at rest at home until complete recovery, for him and for his companions.

1. Febrile pictures
I am referring to those that are difficult to handle, where regular medication and / or physical means are required and more so if the fever is accompanied by other symptoms and a lot of general condition. And if there is a history of feverish seizures, the ideal is to leave it at home.

2. Conjunctivis
A very contagious pathology, either viral or bacterial, especially because children run their hands over their eyes and contaminate everything they touch.

3. Tonsillitis
Especially if it is pultácea, that is, it has the presence of pus plaques on the tonsils. Contagion occurs through flugge droplets, which are droplets of saliva that are emitted when talking, sneezing or coughing and carry pathogenic microorganisms.

4. Infectious viral syndromes
Such as the flu produced by the influenza virus, chickenpox, rubella, measles, hand-foot-mouth syndrome, mumps, etc.

5. Dysentery or gastroenteritis picture
Who present abundant and frequent diarrheal evacuations, accompanied in addition to vomiting, pain and abdominal distention, flatulence and / or signs of dehydration.

6. Respiratory symptoms viral, bacterial or allergic infections
Bronchitis or bronchiolitis, bronchial asthma, pneumonia, or laryngotracheitis. They are very bulky pictures, with a lot of affection of the general state, decay, respiratory distress, frequent cough and almost always fever.

7. Stomatitis or cold or oral herpes
They are very contagious and affect the general state, since it makes it difficult for them to eat or drink liquids.

8. Pediculosis
Also known as a lice infestation, which is highly contagious.

9. Other pathologies very debilitating such as dengue, zica or mononucleosis.
