Infectious Diseases Fact Sheets

These fact sheets are designed as quick-reference guides to infectious diseases that may appear in children and are used as a resource for educators and parents.  Children who are unwell should see a doctor to be diagnosed.  If the cause of the illness is an infectious disease, the preschool should be notified so that we can advise and display the appropriate fact sheet to all families.
