Accidents and Injuries Involving Children

All accidents must be communicated immediately to the lead teacher. Only teaching staff may administer first aid, not students. Latex gloves must be worn. Accident reports (including Form H if blood is evident) must be filled out and the parent must sign the accident report that day. The accident report should be reviewed by one of the lead teachers before the parent is given it to sign. (See samples of the Accident Report and Form H at the back of this handbook) All signed forms should be given to the Director.

Each room has their own first aid kit, which should be taken on all field trips. Each playground also has its own first aid kit. In case of a medical emergency that requires you to call an ambulance, emergency telephone numbers and directions to the Center are posted above each telephone.
