Ear Infections and School or Daycare
Many children get ear infections, and most schools or daycare programs are not permitted to administer medications. Ask your doctor how to schedule your child's medicine, if your child has an ear infection and the school or daycare will not administer the medication.
Even before your child has an ear infection or needs to take medicine, ask the daycare program or school about their medication policy. Sometimes you will need a note from your doctor for the staff at the school. The note can tell the people at your child's school how and when to give your child medicine, if it is needed during school hours. Some schools will not give children medicine. If this is the case at your child's school, ask your doctor how to schedule your child's medicine.
