I work part time and just found a new childcare provider for my 2 1/2 yr old dd - she is a SAHM with 2 kids. She has a contract that she uses and one question is:
Are the child/children's immunizations up to date and will they continue to be updated accordingly?
If you responded "no" please elaborate.
What do I say? My previous provider never asked and I never said anything. I am concerned about her refusing to take my child but more concerned that she might overreact and call CPS or something - there is SO MUCH fear mongering about vaccines and I am really concerned about how she will react.
I am thinking of saying something like:
"after my neice had a vaccine reaction, we spent months researching the risks and benefits and vaccines and diseases and we are comfortable in our decision not to vaccinate. Our doctor is supportive of our decision. I would be happy to discuss this further if you have any questions or concerns."
I am also a little concerned because she wants me to sign a medical release in case of emergencies. I guess I could add a part that I do not consent to any vaccines.
I am supposed to take my dd in the morning - I think I will probably bring the contract to her when I go to pick her up and not say anything about it unless she brings it up - or should I just bring it in the morning when I drop off my dd?
