FPIES BEEN THERE DONE THAT ADVICE
Sending your FPIES kiddos to daycare can be very daunting! Tons of kiddos, foods, and not as much supervision as you have at home is nerve-wracking! Here's some tips for making requests and changes you can have done at daycare for peace of mind!
KEEP FOOD AT THE TABLE- Require that daycares only allow the kids to eat food at the table. No walking around with food. No Food anywhere other than at the food specific table.
LOW TEACHER-STUDENT RATIOS- The more teachers that there are per student/child the better. That means more eyes watching and making sure that your child is not being fed or getting into something that can hurt them. Some medical daycares have a ratio as low as 2:1 (two kids per 1 teacher). Typically state laws vary, however the ideal ratio in a normal daycare for 2-3 year olds is between 3-4 kids per each teacher.
PROVIDE THE CHILD'S FOOD- As much as we all hate it, if you provide your own child's food, there's virtually no risk that they are fed the wrong foods.
SAFE SENSORY PLAY AREAS- Make sure that any play-tables, paints, play-doh, crayons, sand, rice tables, etc... are all going to either be made of safe ingredients OR not out when your child is there & thoroughly cleaned up afterwards.
COMMUNICATION. COMMUNICATION. COMMUNICATION. It is imperative that you communicate expectations with your daycare team. If you aren't crystal clear with your daycare team they most likely will make mistakes that could harm your child. Put everything in writing so there is no question what is expected.
