We hate to nit pick but…

stethoscopeEach month we have a public health nurse come to our center. She helps keep us up to date on different policies and procedures and talks about different health topics.

This month we talked about all the crud going around. We haven’t had it in our center yet but one big thing going around right now is Lice!

We thought this would be a great time to review Lice and LBLC. Because we are a child care center, we are Nit Free. That means a child cannot come to Little Beginnings if they have live lice OR nits.

There is research indicating that the lice have become resistant to common treatments. The public health nurse brought this article to read.
Lice Resistant to Common Treatments in Many States

Hopefully we won’t have to deal with this first hand but if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
